Event: Building Internationalism from Below in a Multipolar World

POSTPONED: We regret to announce that Saturday’s event on ‘Building Internationalism from Below in a Multipolar World’ has been postponed due to circumstances outwith our control. We hope to confirm a new date for the event as soon as possible.

The Republican Socialist Platform invites friends to discuss ‘Building Internationalism from Below in a Multipolar World’ in Glasgow on Saturday 23rd March 2024.

Our main speaker is Professor Gilbert Achcar, professor of development studies and international relations at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London.

His many books, published in a total of 15 languages, include:

  • The Clash of Barbarisms: The Making of the New World Disorder (2002, 2006);
  • Perilous Power: The Middle East and U.S. Foreign Policy, co-authored with Noam Chomsky (2007, 2008);
  • The Arabs and the Holocaust: The Arab-Israeli War of Narratives (2010);
  • Marxism, Orientalism, Cosmopolitanism (2013);
  • The People Want: A Radical Exploration of the Arab Uprising (2013); and
  • Morbid Symptoms: Relapse in the Arab Uprising (2016).

Most recently, Professor Achcar is the author of The New Cold War: The US, Russia and China – From Kosovo to Ukraine, which was published in 2023.

On the day, we will also be joined by speakers from the Palestinian, Kurdish and Ukrainian solidarity movements to provide an update on the current state of these struggles and what we can do to support them.

This event is free to attend, but we welcome donations to help us cover the costs of arranging speakers and the venue.

This public event will be governed by the RSP’s comradely conduct and care policy.
