Grants to this Grantee
for support of a history of the origins of neoliberalism
The University of California, Irvine School of Law is a public law school chartered by the UC Regents in 2009 with a mission for innovative teaching, exceptional scholarship, and public service. This grant will support a book and other papers on the Neoliberal Revolution authored by Professor Mehrsa Baradaran, which will highlight the political roots of free market fundamentalism in the 1960s anti-colonialist movements abroad and the domestic economic justice movements linked with the Civil Rights movement. They will show how neoliberalism served as a potent justification for maintaining white-dominated power structures across the world. The project will propose a new framework for regulation that is free of the market-centering measurements of the neoliberal era and that shifts the focus toward a legal doctrine based on constitutional democracy, with policies focused on society.
