Globalisation and its discontents: crisis, migrants, change
On Tuesday, 12 December 2016, Srećko Horvat held a guest lecture within the doctoral course Theories of Society. The title of the lecture was: Globalisation and its discontents: crisis, migrants, change. The lecture addressed the conflict of diverse political, social, and cultural interests that clash over the current migrant crisis in Europe. Critical consideration revealed Europe as complicit in the economic warfare that is waged in and against Near and Middle Eastern countries. The burden of consequences that the post-colonial destruction wrought on the region, is as much evident in the outflow of refugees as is in the attendant moral panic in EU.
