Politics and Activism

The surge of authoritarianism is frequently attributed to the influence of charismatic, astute leaders, overshadowing the deep-seated historical patterns of authoritarianism entrenched in modern politics, economics, and society. TNI unites global researchers and activists to dissect the roots of the current authoritarian wave. Our goal is to explore how progressive movements can effectively confront and articulate emancipatory alternatives to counter this trend. Join us as we delve into the historical backdrop of authoritarianism and chart a course towards a brighter future, characterized by inclusive governance and transformative solutions.
