$25 – $31

Reinventing the Welfare State: Digital Platforms and Public Policies

Ursula Huws

In Reinventing the Welfare State: Digital Platforms and Public Policies Ursula Huws proposes a welfare state infused with social justice and equality, including a redistributive UBI (universal basic income), decommodification of platforms and universal workers’ rights. With positivity and rigor, she outlines a ‘digital welfare state’ for the 21st century, which would involve a repurposing of online platform technologies under public control to modernise and expand public services, and improve accessibility.

Ursula Huws speaks with Todd Wolfson on creative ideas for reinventing the welfare state to address contemporary challenges in a session chaired by FireWorks Series editor, and Editorial Director at Pluto Press, David Castle.

Sliding scale pricing includes Ursula’s presentation, the new book (inclusive of shipping — US and Puerto Rico only)
