THE STRUGGLE FOR DEMOCRACY: Exploring Commonalities in Global Citizenship and Activism 

Join us in partnership with Comhlámh this Autumn for the new First Wednesdays series, a set of three interlinked conversations with those currently involved in real-world struggles in Ireland and beyond. We will take a closer look at commonalities ‘in struggle’ across campaigning and activism movements, and explore what it would mean to consider these struggles as part of a process of ‘acts of global citizenship’ and ‘democratising democracy’.

PART 1: Struggle as Acts of Citizenship

Date: Wednesday, 5 Oct, 7PM

What ‘acts of citizenship’ could we point to in struggles here in Ireland? At our opening October session, we will take a closer look at how these examples might extend our understanding of citizenship, its role in affirming and securing more justice, and helping us to imagine alternative futures.
