The organisation of an International Women’s Seminar was decided in February 2012 by the leadership of the International.
13th - 15th January 2012
Daniel Bensaïd was a leading member of the Fourth International in France(in the Ligue Communiste Révolutionnaire) and internationally. He died at the age of 63 in January 2010. He was also a philosopher and prolific author of political and philosophical works.
This second seminar is a follow-up of the seminar on the economic crisis held in October 2-4 2009.
The IIRE's three-to-four-week Women's Schools have considerably enriched our other courses.
2-4 October 2009, IIRE, Amsterdam
The purpose of the seminar is to analyse the nature and the consequences of the present international economic crisis. Two main issues should be raised:
All the participants in the fourth LGBT seminar held at the IIRE in July 2009 were extremely positive about what they had had gained from sharing the three days of discussion and debate on key issues facing LGBT people working in an anti-capitalist framework.
Participants included 26 people from 14 countries
“We must do this again -very soon”, said one of the twenty-two radical socialist-feminists from eleven countries in Europe, Latin America and Asia, who participated in the IIRE International Women's Seminar, 11-15 July. “It was so positive to have the time to explore these issues together and look at them in an international context."
On the weekend 19-21 June, IIRE hosted the Europe-wide Meeting on Solidarity with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.
This question is ever so urgent to discuss, in order to advance concrete proposals and the work of solidarity as bombs fall over Gaza and the number of innocent victims increases from day to day.
