Invitation to research seminar on "Responses to the European crises: social mobilizations and political opportunities"

Research seminar with Donatella della Porta. Employees at AAU are welcome, but please sign up.


11.10.2017 kl. 10.00 - 16.00


The European landscape of activism and social movements has changed in recent years as several ‘crises’ have swept the continent. New actors and transnational dynamics have emerged as anti-austerity and solidarity movements, among others, have mobilized across borders. They have challenged conventional politics at national and European levels, reconfiguring to some extent the space of mobilization. This seminar seeks to discuss these developments as well as the potential and challenges they imply. It is open for participation with or without paper. Please register here

Deadline for registration (with or without paper): October 3rd 2017.
