The IIRE team has been cleaning out in its book stocks. If have a big stock of some particular book, that we offer at a highly discounted price, up to 90 per cent cheaper than regular price, in order to provide space (and money) for new books.


The IIRE organises in cooperation with the yearbook 'Kritiek. Jaarboek voor socialistische discussie en analyse' a lecture by Erik Swyngedouw on David Harvey, geographical materialism and urban social struggles on Thursday, the 29th of October.

2-4 October 2009, IIRE, Amsterdam

The purpose of the seminar is to analyse the nature and the consequences of the present international economic crisis. Two main issues should be raised:

  • What is the nature of the present crisis? Is it a classical economic crisis of capitalism? Or is it a new kind of economic crisis due to the peculiar role of finance? A crisis of financialised capitalism? Are there solid reasons to believe that it will be as dramatic as 1929 or not?
Since 1982, the existence of the International Institute for Research and Education in Amsterdam (IIRE-Amsterdam) has been instrumental in bringing together activists from all inhabited continents for critical exchanges of thoughts and experiences in the daily struggle for emancipation of all oppressed peoples of the world.
