The New International Division of Labour and the Differentiated Integration of Europe: The Case of Spain

G Charnock, T. F. Purcell, R. Ribera-Fumaz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The chapter argues that it is of crucial importance to understand the longer-term historical role played within the new international division of labour (NIDL) by relatively late industrialising countries that are today bearing the brunt of crisis and ‘internal devaluation’ in a ‘unified’ Europe. Focusing on Spain, they argue that it is precisely on the material basis of its full integration within the NIDL from the mid-1970s that the conditions of the reproduction of the working class were re-shaped, and it is this ‘historical component’ in the reproduction of the Spanish accumulation process that has prefigured the process of the differentiation of the conditions of the reproduction of the working class within and across its borders ever since.
