Reflections from the United States on 'Illegality' and 'Incorrigibility'
IIRE, Amsterdam, 15th June 2010, 19.30 (see details below)

For example, other courses have borrowed feminist analyses initially presented here of the interaction of gender, race and class, social and family dynamics of economic restructuring, and democracy and leadership development in popular organizations.

As the global financial crisis continues to fester, local and national governments tend to place the bulk of the burden on public spending. More cuts and lay-offs, reductions in salaries and the disappearance of community-based projects place the most vulnerable sectors of society at higher risk. Parallel to this leaning, liberal, multiparty democracy seems to be failing its citizens. Now more than ever, it is time for activists to take matters into their own hands and reclaim what traditionally has belonged to the commons.
