‘Empresas Recuperadas’: Argentina’s Recovered Factory Movement

Published on 31 March 2020

The ‘empresas recuperadas’ or worker-recovered enterprise movement in Argentina emerged as a response to the country’s sovereign debt crisis of 2001, with workers fighting for their right to run abandoned factories. Central to the movement is an ethos of solidarity, with worker-owned enterprises based on horizontal authority, collective decision-making and shared returns from the business.
