Democracy, Capitalism and Feminism

Monday, 16 July 2018: 10:30-12:20
RC02 Economy and Society (host committee)

Language: English

Keynote session on "Democracy, Capitalism and Feminism" will present different approaches to the potential for emancipatory power and the process of democracy within our existing capitalist system and current and future crises. The global system generates crises that worsen exploitation and ultimately a crisis for humanity in the 21st century.  This session seeks to advance new perspectives on the political challenges to the crisis at this critical historical conjuncture.  What alliances, coalitions and joint political projects would be necessary to deepen democracy and to build a counter-hegemonic vision and practice?
