You are invited to the inaugural Professorial Lecture by Simone Baglioni, Professor of politics in GCU’s Yunus Centre for Social Business and Health.
In light of a rise in xenophobic movements and their impact on European politics, Professor Baglioni will focus on transnational solidarity, exploring the mobilisation of citizens against this reactionary wave.
Through the lens of relevant cases, Professor Baglioni will examine how citizens are collaborating across borders in the name of solidarity with those facing worsening circumstances and diverse challenges relating to unemployment, migration and disability.
‘Voices from the bright side of Europe: Transnational mobilisation against xenophobia, populism and racism’ will take place on Wednesday, May 17, from 5.30pm, in the Deeprose Lecture Theatre. A drinks reception will follow.
