Session # 161: SSSP conference 2021 „Revolutionary Sociology“

The Rise of and Opposition to Authoritarian Race-Ethnic-Religious-Caste Oppression in Late Capitalism

From the open racism of the pro-Trump movement to European resistance to immigrants from both the Global South and other parts of Europe, to Modi’s India, South Africa, and dozens of other places, persistent “branded from birth” discrimination against various race-religion-ethnic (RRE) and caste groupings has become more normalized within political discourse and policy.
Differences exist from place to place but there are also commonalities that are tied to the intensifying economic instability of late capitalism often combined with extreme nationalism. What kinds of transnational movements can develop to oppose this?
