In Solidarity: Rethinking Political Friendship
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 how we can build a counter to the powerful networks of the International Right, and the potentialities and challenges of organising with and for others. This will be followed by an open dialogue on resisting the right after Trump.
Tuesday 15 November 5pm
Mill Lane Lecture Theaters Room 1
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.
