Socialism, capitalism and the alternatives: lessons from Russia and Eastern Europe


Various Venues | Wilkins Building (link Map)
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom

Open to: Academic | Alumni | Public | Student
Admission: Free
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential

During the 100 years of the existence of the School of Slavonic and East European Studies (SSEES) the world has seen the creation, dominance and dissolution of Communism in Russia and Eastern Europe. Neo-liberalism, Communism’s archenemy, which appeared dominant following the collapse of the European Socialist regimes, has recently suffered its own crisis of credibility. Yet articulating coherent alternatives to these entrenched conceptual categories remains stubbornly difficult.

The conference, the culmination of SSEES’s centenary celebrations, will include speakers Thomas Piketty, Naomi Klein, Leszek Balcerowicz, Chantal Mouffe, Tomáš Sedlácek, Jan Kubik, and more.
