Roundtable Event. Enduring Colonialism: New Powers and Resistance Movements

(Organised by Nawal Watali and Chi Chi Shi)

The event will explore present day colonialism in the 'post-colonial' world order. Whilst there has been a renewed wave of focus on the legacies of European colonialism, what does the endurance of colonialism, occupation and new imperial formations - many outside of the centres of Europe - teach us about the geographies of control and global power in a 'post-colonial' world? This roundtable will explore the different strategies, tactics and forces of these new colonial powers, anti-colonial struggles and forms of resistance present in the world today, and the global relevance of these struggles. It will explore these issues through a focus on India Occupied Kashmir, Palestine, and Western Sahara.

Each speaker will have 15 minutes to speak/present followed by a 15 minute response and comments by Jennifer, keeping one hour later for questions and open discussions.
