Session Abstract

For those working towards social justice for all, the state of democracy is in crisis. The surge in populism in Europe and post-truthism under Trump, Brexit in the UK, and the Covid-19 pandemic and associated infodemic exposing deep inequalities in rights, are evidence of ongoing trends that are likely to undermine social justice in the short and long term. This roundtable explores how international development studies can shape our understanding of building solidarity networks in the global north. By implication, the roundtable will debate how international development studies can refocus from its historical and ongoing focus in the globally south to work truly globally. Speakers are academics and activists working alongside and as part of solidarity movements in marginal parts of the world, including Europe and the US.

Confirmed speakers:

Prof. Marianne Mackelbergh - Ghent University (Belgium) and Leiden University (Netherlands)

Prof. Maria Kousis - University of Crete (Greece)

Prof. John Gaventa - Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex (United Kingdom)
