  • The Precariat is a new class, comprising the growing number of people facing lives of insecurity, doing work without a past or future. Their lack of belonging and identity means inadequate access to social and economic rights. Why is this new class growing, what political dangers does it represent and how might these be addressed?

  • Antonio Donini (Editor), Norah Niland (Author of chapter on Protection), Helen Young (Author of chapter on Darfur), Jonathan Goodhand (Chair)
  • This edited volume examines the impact of manipulation on the effectiveness of humanitarian action.
