FES India together with WIEGO is proud to present the book "Redefined Labour Spaces: Organising Workers in Post Liberalised India" edited by Sobin Gorge and Shailini Sinha.

The book discusses the transformation of labour movements in post-liberalised India. It looks at emerging collectivism, both in formal and informal sectors, and relates it to changing political and industrial relations. Bringing together studies of resistance, struggles and new forms of negotiations from different industries –agriculture, fisheries, brick kiln, plantations, IT, domestic workers, shipbreakers, sex workers, and miners –this book exposes the myths, realities and challenges that the present generation of workers in India face and struggle with. 

The book was launched on May 28th, 2018 at a Panel Discussion hosted at India International Centre, New Delhi.
