Imperial Mode of Living ‚at work‘ in Latin America

JEP Presentation (Journal für Entwicklungspolitik)

To secure the resource intensive prosperity of the Global North, the so called imperial mode of living externalises social and environmental costs that are both shifted to the Global South and within society along class, gender and racialised lines. The imperial mode of living has
so spread across societies, which have been sites of exploitation since colonial times. Despite multiple social conflicts and resistance to the effects of the imperial mode of living, it became the dominant model of development in Latin America. The event will address the question of how the imperial mode of living was able to assert itself despite its manifold contradictions. Authors of two JEP special issues (JEP 2021-4 and JEP 2022-1) will discuss the interplay of everyday actions and social structures that enable and support the reproduction of the imperial mode of living in the Global South.
