A webinar hosted together by the Berliner Gazette and the Transnational Institute (TNI) will explore the dynamics and the strategies that have emerged on the left to address decoloniality in the region. The event will take place on Thursday, 4 November at 6 pm CET.
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.

“Decoloniality and Eastern Europe” is part of a series of webinars organized by Transnational Institute. The series follows the publication of a new collection of East European new left perspectives on the region’s postsocialist transformation, and aims to debate further on several key contemporary debate points.
This webinar is also part of Berliner Gazette’s project BLACK BOX EAST.
