‘Class, State and Nation’: 19 July 2019, Winnipeg, Canada

7th Mar 2019



‘Class, State and Nation in the Twenty-First Century’

The Fourteenth Forum of the World Association for Political Economy

19-21 July 2019, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada

The 14th WAPE Forum on “Class, State and Nation in the Twenty-First Century’ will be held 19-21 July 2019 at the University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada in conjunction with the Geopolitical Economy Research Group (GERG) at the University of Manitoba. The theme is designed to address the interaction of class, nation and state at the domestic and international levels. It will address the centrality of the state in tackling issues societies face domestically – such as the continuing economic malaise after 2008, the polarization of politics and the re-emergence of class politics and the hopeful signs of a resurgence of wider progressive politics – including feminist, anti-racist and anti-imperialist and indigenous movements and parties. It is also designed to draw attention to the central role of states in the increasingly multipolar world order, transformed by the rise of China and other developing nations, as evidenced in trade wars, proliferating sanctions, the role of new powers in the middle east, the challenges to the international role of the dollar and so on.
