Access will be provided after registration for the event.
There is an international division of humanity, Dr. Vijay Prashad proposes. It is as if a wall separated humanity; those who live in zones of great war and tragedy are disconnected from those who live with the illusion of peace, in countries that produce the conditions for war but deny their responsibility for it.
Connecting with the Centre’s research agenda on (de-)legitimation in global cooperation, and on global cooperation and diverse conceptions of world order, this talk looked at how this division of humanity was created and what could be done to overcome it.
Why have previous Southern emancipation projects, like the BRICS, failed to offer a real challenge to Western hegemony? Would a new project for emancipation in the South be possible, and what could or should it look like? How can it contribute to a more democratic world order that is premised on the hopes and dreams of all the peoples of the world?
Vijay Prashad is the director of Tricontinental: Institute for Social Research and Chief Correspondent for Globetrotter (a syndication service that reaches over two hundred periodicals from Afghanistan to Chile). He is the author of the two-volume history of the modern world, The Darker Nations: A People’s History of the Third World (2007) and The Poorer Nations: A Possible History of the Global South (2013) as well as Washington Bullets (2020) and Struggle Makes Us Human: Learning from Movements for Socialism (2022). In August 2022, his book – co-authored with Noam Chomsky – The Withdrawal: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, and the Fragilities of US Power will be published by The New Press.
