Insight #17: Raul Pacheco-Vega on ethnography and the ethics of care

This insight episode is taken from episode 039, where Michael and I talk with Raul Pacheco-Vega.

Raul is a professor in the Public Administration Division of the Centre for Economic Research and Teaching, CIDE (Centro de Investigacion y Docencia Economicas, CIDE, AC) based out of CIDE Region Centro in Aguascalientes, Mexico. In the full podcast (episode 039) we discussed his work on waste and waste pickers, wastewater, and bottled water as un-traditional commons. We also spoke about the importance of making care work and life support systems visible under the Covid pandemic. In this insight we highlight his thoughts on the value of ethnography as a methodology to understand those issues.
