PUBLIC TALK & BOOK LAUNCH - Friday 25 July 2014, 19:00 - 21:00

Europe on the Brink; Debt Crisis and Dissent in the European Community

Europe is suffering from a bipolar economic disorder. Financial journalists divide the continent into two groups of nations - centre and periphery - not by geography but by credit rating. Europe on the Brink is a critical investigation of the root causes of this sovereign debt crisis, and the often misguided policy choices made to resolve it. This much-needed book offers a heterodox economic perspective on the causes, symptoms and solutions of the biggest economic issue currently facing Europe.

Memories of the 1980 coup in Turkey

The 1980 Coup D’Etat depicts a pivotal moment in the history of Turkey. When the National Security Council declared the Coup on September 12th, extended martial law throughout the country and abolished the Parliament and the Government; not only did it end the hegemonic crisis but also paved the way to rebuild and restructure the society in order to facilitate the economic and social integration to the neoliberal order. Keşke Bir Öpüp Koklasaydım, a book of oral history, focuses on the families of the revolutionists that were directly targeted by the Military during and after the Coup. Their stories shed a light on intricate effects of militarism and open fascism towards families and towards the larger society. Children, spouses, parents and relatives share their long-term individual struggles to survive psychologically as well as their organized efforts to resist the dictatorial authority in order to demand justice. Eylem Delikanlı, Özlem Delikanlı, Alaz Erdost and Sevgi Can Yağcı Aksel will join the panel to expand on the 1980 Coup D’Etat and their vital efforts towards building a collective memory. Özlem will be present and others will join by video conference.

Please note the meeting will be in Turkish.

16th of may at 19.00 at the IIRE, Lombokstraat 40, Amsterdam.

Participants in the 2012 School. Professor Kwame Nimake is first on the left.

For the second year, the IIRE will be hosting the Summer School on Black Europe (24th June-5th July), which reaches now it’s sixth edition. We publish an interview we had with Professor Kwame Nimako, the main organiser, at the end of last year’s session.

Now that the Seminar is approaching its end, we would like you to tell us something about this seminar and what have you been discussing these last two weeks.

Last April, the Clean Clothes Campaign held a series of workshops and a seminar at the IIRE from the 18th until the 23rd of April. We had planned a short article and interview with the organisers. But then the catastrophe in Dhaka, Bangladesh arrived.

Instead of an article, we publish the urgent appeal by the Clean Clothes Campaign:

The webside Europe-Solidaire published an appeal for support to the victims, by Alam Badrul, president of the national Krishok Federation, a Bangladeshi Farmers Union,.
