Counterpoint is partnering with the Othering and Belonging Institute at the University of California Berkeley, More in Common and Science Po Paris for a series of webinars, conferences, and publications to bridge the conversation across the Atlantic on matters to do with inclusion and exclusion, race, discrimination, police brutality.
We could not have chosen a more appropriate time to launch our collaboration, as so many in Europe and across the world have taken on the #BlackLivesMatter cause in the wake of George Ffloyd’s murder. The worldwide uprisings and shift in public consciousness triggered by the outrage against the US police killings of Black Americans – George Floyd and Breonna Taylor being the most visible in a too-long line of deaths- opens up possibilities for new orientations of our movements, policies, narratives, and strategies that can build long-term, sustainable solidarity, belonging, and social change.
What does the globalisation of the movement mean? how does it differ in content, style, demands from one place to another? How can we share a vocabulary and a set of perspectives?
Come and help us kick off our Toward Belonging programme with our partners the Othering and Belonging Institute, and More in Common
john a. powell for the Othering and Belonging Institute, Abdul Rehman Malik, Yale University Council of Middle East Studies,
