Abstract: Abstract The current organization of social reproductionSocial reproduction, based on unequal gender, classClass and raceRace/racist/racism relations, on oppression and dispossession, is the condition for accumulation in the globalized capitalist system. It is also, increasingly, a terrain for strugglesStruggle and social transformations.

This definition is enriched by the contributions of the practices and politicalPolitics/political/politicization strugglesStruggle of the most marginalized groups and thus needs to be contextualized, as the various case studies in this book show.
