March 30: The Left and social movements in Trump's USA

Donald Trump's election as president sent shock waves around the world. In the US, his racist and sexist rhetoric has emboldened the far right. His administration is attacking the social gains that remain from the New Deal and Great Society and adopting even more policies to benefit the rich and big business.  At the same time, leftist organizations have been growing, millions of women have been mobilizing, Black Lives Matter is continuing its campaigns, and recently in West Virginia striking teachers won a significant victory.  The IIRE is holding an evening discussion on these political developments in the US and the left's response in organizing against Trump's agenda.

Oproep voor donaties

Zoals elk jaar, organiseert het IIRE in mid-november en begin december een internationale, drieweekse school voor socialistische activisten. Deze 'Ecosocialistische School' biedt activisten een unieke kans om samen te komen, te leren, ervaringen uit te wisselen en netwerken te versterken. Om zoveel mogelijk mensen de gelegenheid te geven om deel te nemen, houden we de deelnemersbijdrage zo laag als mogelijk en indien nodig geven we financiele steun voor de reiskosten van mensen uit het Globale Zuiden.

September 7: Automation and the Future of Work. Talk by Aaron Benanav

In the first lecture of Radical Futures talks series, Aaron Benanav critically discussed new economic theories of the "rise of the robots," which claim that rapidly unfolding processes of computerization and robotization are the main causes of growing problems of unemployment and underemployment worldwide. The lecture discusses the real reasons behind the rise of a global precarious workforce and explores the consequences of these global developments for workers' struggles today.
