Globale (Re-)Produktionsnetzwerke aus feministischer Labour-Geography-Perspektive

Leben und Alltagskämpfe von kambodschanischen Bekleidungsarbeiter*innen




Bekleidungsindustrie, feministische Labour Geography, Globales (Re-)Produktionsnetzwerk, Kambodscha, Soziale Reproduktion


Um Lebenswirklichkeiten und Alltagskämpfe von Arbeiter*innen in globalen Produktionsprozessen begreifen zu können, muss die theoretische Grundlage die kapitalistische Realität der Arbeiter*innen gänzlich erfassen. Globale Produktionsnetzwerke (GPNs) wie die Bekleidungsindustrie müssen als Globale (Re-)Produktionsnetzwerke (GRPNs) neu konzeptualisiert werden, um die geschlechtsspezifische und rassifizierte Seite sozialer Reproduktionsprozesse systematisch in eine Analyse um globale Produktionen miteinzubeziehen. Einer feministischen Labour Geography-Perspektive auf GRPNs folgend, zeigt ein partizipatives Forschungsprojekt mit Bekleidungsarbeiter*innen in Kambodscha, dass diese in stark verwobene räumliche Prozesse der (Re-)Produktion eingebettet sind, die stets in Bezug zueinander betrachtet werden müssen.
