 Convener: Shu-Fen Lin

This group of projects addresses issues such as population decline, shrinking labor force, wage stagnation, debt, mass poverty and growing disparity faced by the so-called “developed” countries through the lens of “aging modernity”; it also investigates into the impacts of and responses to the changing mode of capital accumulation, development strategy, and the governance of space and migration, with the focus on displacement, the formation of the invisible subaltern social groups, the self-organization of (im)migrants, and the right to the city.
