Illicit Labour (ERC project) – Illicit labour and the photovoltaic industry
PI: Carlo Inverardi-Ferri
Deadline: 15 aprile 2024

Which labour regimes in manufacturing processes sustain solar panel production? How do informal energy markets work? What are the social and environmental challenges raised by end-of-life photovoltaic modules? How can this analysis reveal new ways to provide clean and affordable energy?
We are extending our research team with two junior members interested in joining the 5-year research project Illicit Labour, funded by a European Research Council Starting Grant. The project, coordinated by Dr Carlo Inverardi-Ferri (PI), involves an international consortium comprising the National Research Council of Italy (CNR) and Queen Mary University of London (QMUL). It pioneers a study of the linkages between climate change mitigation and illicit economies and the resulting implications for ecological governance. The project investigates global photovoltaic industry production networks to reveal the dark sides of the green energy sector in different geographical sites and to advance new perspectives on risk, vulnerability, and mitigation, considering the interplay between the green energy sector and the illicit economy.
