Common Wealth and Autonomy are excited to host the London launch of Democratize Work (Chicago University Press) — edited by Isabelle Ferreas, Julie Battilana, and Dominique Méda — which argues for workplace democracy to rebalance power in the economy and society at large.


Democratize Work is a collection of essays from a dozen social scientists – all women – that makes the case for reorganising work to build a sustainable economy that fits the democratic project of our societies.


To celebrate the book’s launch, Isabelle Ferreas and Hélène Landemore will be in conversation with Parth Patel (IPPR), Amelia Horgan (Common Wealth) and more TBA. The panel will be chaired by Mathew Lawrence (Common Wealth). Their discussion will be followed by an audience Q&A.
