This webinar was a collaboration between Transnational Institute Amsterdam and Berliner Gazette as part of the BLACK BOX EAST project ( blackboxeast.berlinergazette.de ) and it explored the strategies that have emerged on the left to address decoloniality in the region.
In response to the failures of neoliberalism, Eastern Europe has seen a rise of nationalist movements and regimes promising salvation through asserting sovereignty. In Hungary and Poland, these movements also deploy anti-colonial rhetoric against “foreign powers.” In the process, they obstruct any critical engagement with the region's own complex role in maintaining global colonial relations.
Speakers: Zoltán Ginelli (Transperiphery Movement), Eszter Kováts (ELTE University Budapest), Andrzej W. Nowak (Adam Mickiewicz University), Veda Popovici. Moderators: Jose Miguel Calatayud and Magdalena Taube (Berliner Gazette).
