Fighting back in Times of Global Crisis: Repoliticizing, Imagining, Achieving

The international event The Great Transition: Struggling in Times of Global Crisis invites you to its new edition, which will take place from May 18 to 21, 2023. 

In order to move from resistance to a societal transformation, we need a real project of transition out of capitalism, based on critical knowledge produced both in the university and in social movements. We therefore invite citizens from diverse backgrounds to reflect on this question with our esteemed international guests, as well as a hundred panels and activities from speakers around the world.
