Ralf Ruckus belongs to the gongchao.org collective. Gongchao.org was formed in September 2008 as a project for the research and documentation of labor unrest and social movements in China from the perspective of class struggle, migration, and gender. The website offers a selection of analytical texts and workers’ stories in English, German and other languages.
Among the gongchao.org publications are: Unrest in China (2007), supplement to the wildcat- magazine; Dagongmei- Women Workers from China’s World-Market Factories tell their Stories (2008), edited by Pun Ngai and Li Wanwei; The Take-off of the 2nd Generation- Gender, Migration, and Class Composition in China (2010), edited by Pun Ngai, Ching Kwan Lee et al,; and iSlaves – Exploitation and Resistance at China’s Foxconn-Factories (2013), edited by Pun Ngai et al. (all published in German, with some parts translated into English).
Besides writing and translating articles and books, gongchao.org participates in inquiries and interview projects in China and sets up talks and discussions on Workers’ Struggles in China in Eastern as well as Western Europe and beyond.
