Oproep voor donaties

Zoals elk jaar, organiseert het IIRE in mid-november en begin december een internationale, drieweekse school voor socialistische activisten. Deze 'Ecosocialistische School' biedt activisten een unieke kans om samen te komen, te leren, ervaringen uit te wisselen en netwerken te versterken. Om zoveel mogelijk mensen de gelegenheid te geven om deel te nemen, houden we de deelnemersbijdrage zo laag als mogelijk en indien nodig geven we financiele steun voor de reiskosten van mensen uit het Globale Zuiden.

September 7: Automation and the Future of Work. Talk by Aaron Benanav

In the first lecture of Radical Futures talks series, Aaron Benanav critically discussed new economic theories of the "rise of the robots," which claim that rapidly unfolding processes of computerization and robotization are the main causes of growing problems of unemployment and underemployment worldwide. The lecture discusses the real reasons behind the rise of a global precarious workforce and explores the consequences of these global developments for workers' struggles today.

An internationalist learning experience

For over 20 years, the IIRE has organized educational courses for young socialist activists. Since moving to the Lombokstraat, the IIRE has organized a youth-school every year, each with around 20-25 participants. The course provides an intensive introduction to Marxist theory and examinations of current struggles, especially focusing on issues that are relevant for youth movements. Responses from participants in our schools have been very positive.

Ecosocialist School 2016

From November 18 to Friday December 9, our annual Ecosocialist School took place. We had participants applications from Belgium, France, South Africa, Indonesia, Argentina, Germany, France, USA, Lebanon, Denmark, and Venezuela.

Participants discussed and studied issues such as the current economic turbulence, how social movements are affected by climate change, the continuing impact of imperialism and neo-colonialism, and worldwide women's movements.
