New Faces of Authoritarianism in the Global South
ABOUT THIS COURSE
The course will offer multidisciplinary perspectives on authoritarian regimes in the Global South along with forms of political and economic repression prompted by neoliberalism, emancipatory social movements, and counter-strategies. The lectures are based on individual projects developed by the members of the International Research Group of Authoritarianism and Counterstrategies (Rosa Luxemburg Foundation) and the group’s analytical and methodological ventures on the study of authoritarianism.
A full outline of the course syllabus can be found here.
Please note that there will be a preparatory meeting that will take place during the usual class hours one week before the class starts. In this meeting, we will introduce you how the platform works and we will offer technical support so that everybody is technically ready for the first session.
