Social Movements & the (un)making of Solidarities
Social movements and labour have been key forces contributing to building and strengthening democracies and creating institutions that democratically govern capitalism.
This summer school wants to explore the rise, development, challenges and innovative strategies of alliances and joint collective action between the so called "new" and "old" social movements and between the global South and the global North in their fight against repression and for the renewal of democratic space.
During this five-day summer school we will discuss the formation (and erosion) of solidarities across labour and other social movements, the innovative, multi-scalar strategies of such cross-movement networks to regain democracy and how these networks deal with multi-facetted repression, from social movement, labour and development studies perspective.
