Can we escape dystopia? New Book

Stephen McBride’s new book Escaping Dystopia: Rebuilding a Public Domain is published by Bristol University Press

Jul 15, 2022

The world is experiencing multiple and intersecting crises that threaten an imminent dystopia. McBride argues that escape requires rolling back the legacy of decades of neoliberalism and global capitalism and rebuilding the public domain through radically transformed institutions based on popular sovereignty. Established institutions and practices have failed to address these crises and are not fit for purpose. A crucial part of reversing the catastrophic policy trajectories must be to devise new institutional structures that can achieve the goals of representation and accountability in new and effective ways.
