Ejidos and Agriculture in a Participatory Economy

January 23, 2024

In Mexico, an ejido refers to village lands communally held in the traditional indigenous system of land tenure that combines communal ownership with individual use. Ejidos were recognized legally 100 years ago following the Mexican Revolution to combat extreme land ownership by the elite. In this program, Robin Hahnel will discuss the lessons of the ejido in envisioning alternatives to capitalism.

Robin Hahnel, is best known for his work on participatory economics with Z Magazine editor Michael Albert. He is author or co-author of many books, including, most recently, A Participatory Economy, and Democratic Economic Planning. He is a professor emeritus of eonomics at American University.

The talk was hosted by the The Center for Global Justice on 15th January 2024. The Center for Global Justice is a multi-cultural, democratically organized service, learning, and research center. Through our support of the social and solidarity economy, our public education programs, and our research collaborations we seek to empower ordinary people to work to create a more socially and economically just world.
