In response to the failures of neoliberalism, Eastern Europe has seen a rise of nationalist movements and regimes promising salvation through asserting 'sovereignty'. In Hungary and Poland, these movements also deploy anti-colonial rhetoric against “foreign powers”. In the process, they obstruct any critical engagement with the region's own complex role in maintaining global colonial relations.This webinar will explore these dynamics and the strategies that have emerged on the left to address decolonization in the region.
This webinar is in collaboration with Berliner Gazette (berlinergazette.de), as part of their BLACK BOX EAST project (blackboxeast.berlinergazette.).
