“Their world is collapsing. Ours is being built,” said Marie Le Pen in a chilling statement after Trump’s win. With upcoming elections in France, Austria and the Netherlands, and far-right governments in power in Erdogan’s Turkey, Modi’s India and Netanyahu’s Israel, the far right is on the rise. It’s time to riot.

Join us for a public dialogue on what needs to be done. Dr. Çubukçu will open this session with her thoughts on the politics of transnational solidarity. Drawing on examples of Erdogan’s brutal crackdown on dissidents – recently Kurdish MPs – and Trump’s chilling victory, she will engage with us on a conversation on thinking through the potentialities and challenges of organising with and for others. This will be followed by an open dialogue on resisting the right after Trump.

Dr. Ayça Çubukçu is Assistant Professor in Human Rights at the London School of Economics and Political Science, where she leads a research group on Internationalism, Cosmopolitanism and the Politics of Solidarity. She is also a co-editor of Jadaliyya’s Turkey page.

This talk is part of the Critical Theory and Practice Seminar series.
