Introduction: Racialized Labour of the Dispossessed as an Endemic Feature of Capitalism

Part of the Neighborhoods, Communities, and Urban Marginality book series (NCUM)


The book is based on an ethnographic journey through five cities from various regions of Romania and their deprived areas recorded in local narratives as no-go places of “Țigănie.” It builds its theoretical perspective at the intersection of theories of unequal development and dependency, de-proletarization debates, postcolonial and decolonial studies, global anthropologies of labour, theories of postsocialism, and Romani studies. The authors regard ghettoized areas not only as systemic by-products but also as places shaped by neoliberal state policies that concentrate specific forms of precarious labour and thereby fuel capital accumulation. The book is divided into two larger parts: the first part unfolds the creation of racialized labour and spaces of marginality, and the second investigates how their invisibility is produced.
