Shadow World: documentary and discussion about global arms trade

In cooperation with the Amsterdam Centre for Globalization Studies

1 February; 20:00-22:00.

The much acclaimed film ‘Shadow World’ reveals the shocking realities of the global arms trade. A screening of the documentary, followed by a discussion with experts.

About the documentary ‘Shadow World’

The film reveals how the international trade in weapons – with the complicity of governments and intelligence agencies, investigative and prosecutorial bodies, weapons manufacturers, dealers and agents – fosters corruption, determines economic and foreign policies, undermines democracy and creates widespread suffering.

The film unravels a number of the world’s largest and most corrupt arms deals through those involved in perpetrating and investigating them. It illustrates why this trade accounts for almost 40% of all corruption in global trade, and how it operates in a parallel legal universe, in which the national security elite who drive it are seldom prosecuted for their often illegal actions. Read more about the film here: https://shadowworldfilm.com/

About the speakers

Erella Grassiani is an Assistant Professor at the department of Anthropology and works as a researcher within the ERC funded SECURCIT project on the privatization and globalization of security at the University of Amsterdam.

Het empathisch teveel. Op naar een werkbare onverschilligheid | Lezing door filosoof Ignaas Devisch (Lezing)

Datum: donderdag 22 februari 2018

Een ‘werkbare onverschilligheid’ is bittere noodzaak voor onze moderne samenleving. Dat stelt de Belgische filosoof Ignaas Devisch. Empathie is selectief van aard. Het is onmisbaar in persoonlijke relaties, maar het moet niet de basis zijn voor het beleid van de moderne staat. Het is namelijk onmogelijk om je in iedereen in te leven. Kom luisteren hoe Devisch wijst op de grenzen en gevaren van empathie.

Deelname

Deelname kost € 5,- | Medewerkers van de RU, studenten, scholieren, Radboud Reflects-abonnees, Alumni Benefits Card-houders en PV Radboud-leden gratis

Transnational Justice and Gendered Vulnerability: Feminist Politics and (Im)possible Solidarities

Lecture by Professor Nikita Dhawan (University of Innsbruck)

Lezing

In recent discussions on gender justice, there has been increasing focus on transnational feminist networks as facilitating “solidarity across borders”. In the face of growing global interdependence, the hope is that a transnational citizen’s movement could potentially galvanize global co-operation in overcoming gender violence and promoting gender equality. In this lecture professor Dhawan argues that while new modes of collective agency can emerge by drawing on gendered vulnerability as a site of political agency, “global sisterhood” can inadvertently also function as a technology of neoliberal governmentality. Against this background, her talk will critically engage with the prospects and limits of global gender justice from a postcolonial perspective.

Registration

The event is free and open to the public. Registration is not required. The event will be followed by drinks.
