It’s not a coincidence that under neoliberal capitalism, racial inequality exists. Race is a social construct, and one that was used to further the colonial project, in pursuit of ever growing economic wealth and power. It is essential to identify strategies that dismantle the system of white supremacy in the pursuit of a just transition.

What will it cover?

  • A context of racial injustice in Europe
  • The history of European colonial expansion fuelling capitalism  
  • Connecting modern day financial instruments with colonialism
  • Centreing racial justice in our vision for economic and political systems change

What will I leave with?

  • An analysis of racial inequality and its connection to the economy
  • An ability to articulate racism in the context of colonialism and capitalism
  • A commitment to centring racial justice in systems change thinking and practice
  • A plan to decolonise local, national or European projects

Who is it for?

Anyone who is practicing a new economy project and wants to deepen their understanding of economic history, and develop innovative strategies building a just transition
