EG Newsletter April 2019

http://www.europeangroup.org/sites/default/files/EG%20April%202019%20NEW...

Welcome to the April edition of our newsletter. We are delighted to say that the Group continues to go from strength to strength, with more members than ever and a promising outlook for the annual conference and the forthcoming editions of our collective journal Power, Justice and Resistance. We strongly encourage members to sign for the next editions which will be distributed over the coming months: http://www.egpress.org/content/justice-power-and-resistance
As everyone will be aware, there are increasingly concerning moves toward populist right movements, including racist, xenophobic and antisemetic attacks and the mass murder of Muslims in New Zealand. This month’s edition reflects these concerns, with contributions from members addressing topics such as terrorism, white supremacy, democracy and social harm. Whilst we wish condolonaces for all those affected, we aim to continue developments of activist and academic counter approaches to intensifying violence. We hope that the annual conference will be key in increasing collective momentum.
To that end, we invite you to read the full call for conference papers (below) and take some time to read and reflect on the excellent contributions from members throughout the newsletter. As always, we very much appreciate it, and are happy to discuss contributions (email Vicky, Dani and Katja on europeangroupcoordinator@gmail.com before the 25th of each month).
No pasarán!

With best wishes,

Vicky Canning, Katja Simončič, and Dani Jiménez [EG coordinator team]

EG Newsletter February 2019

Dear comrades and colleagues of the European Group,
Hello and welcome to the first newsletter of 2019! We have an exciting year ahead and very much look forward to working with you to continue and develop collaborations, share ideas and move forward with strategies of support and resistance in increasing restrictive and controlling times.
As you will see from the newsletter this month, the key way in which we aim to do that is through the European Group annual conference in Barcelona in September. This year, we strongly encourage presenters to offer examples of toolkits, strategies and collaborations which we can mutually learn from and develop on. As you will see from the call (below) this year centres on action – what have you and/or your colleagues done which have been successful in building strategies for social justice? What has happened that could have gone better that we can all learn from? Are there ways that other members of the European Group can help build support networks?
To that end, we invite you to read the full call (below) and take some time to read and reflect on the excellent contributions from members throughout the newsletter. As always, we very much appreciate it, and are happy to discuss contributions (email Vicky, Dani and Katja on europeangroupcoordinator@gmail.com before the 25th of each month).
Enjoy February!
With best wishes,
Vicky Canning, Katja Simončič, and Dani Jiménez [coordinator team]
