Racism and Neoliberalism in Everyday Life

Monday, 16 July 2018: 17:30-19:20
RC05 Racism, Nationalism, Indigeneity and Ethnicity (host committee)

Language: English

This panel session will focus on the impact of racism in the context of neoliberal ideology and governance.

A variety of local, regional and global crises emerged as a result of differential impacts of neo-liberal globalisation. Many of these crises have been associated with different forms of racialisation which were aimed against particular groupings of people and have excluded, oppressed and/or discriminated against them. The resulting population movements have only exacerbated these crises of governability and governmentality.

The panel will bring together leading sociologists from different parts of the world to debate this critical contemporary topic.
