Bill Mitchell, co - author of 'Reclaiming the State – a Progressive Vision of Sovereignty for a Post-Neoliberal World', will be speaking in Wynne’s Hotel Dublin at a meeting co - sponsored by the People's Movement on February Sat 15th next at 2:00 pm.

He will present a talk entitled “EU Nation States and the EU post – Brexit,” and those who attended his last lecture will certainly want to hear his latest insights as ‘Reclaiming the State – a Progressive Vision of Sovereignty for a Post-Neoliberal World’ will soon be published in a revised and updated second edition and will surely come to be seen as one of the more important social science works of our time. It In it Australian economics professor William Mitchell and Italian political theorist Thomas Fazi reconceptualise the Nation State as a vehicle for progressive change. They issue a highly topical challenge to progressives, the left and genuine liberals to come to the defence of national sovereignty and not cede that issue to the populist right.

The book concludes with a challenge to the Left: “Beyond the centrality of the State from a political-economic point of view, the Left has to come to terms with the fact that for the vast majority of people that do not belong – and never will belong — to the globe- trotting international elite, their sense of citizenship, collective identity and common good is intrinsically and intimately tied to nationhood… In this sense, a progressive vision of national sovereignty should aim to reconstruct and redefine the national State as a place where citizens can seek refuge in democratic protection, popular rule, local autonomy, collective goods and egalitarian traditions, rather than a culturally and ethnically homogenised society. This is also the necessary prerequisite for the construction of a new internationalist world order based on interdependent but independent sovereign States”.

Where: Wynne’s Hotel Dublin

When: 2pm on Sat Feb 15th 2020

Talk on: EU Nation States and the EU post – Brexit
