Special Talk Session with Prof. Arturo Escobar ‘Encountering Development’ Revisited: In Search of Pluriversal Transitions

The modernist project of development after the Second World War imposed a onesided view of the world, reducing diverse cultural realities to an abstract market principle and thus causing loss of cultural autonomy, environmental destruction, climate change and social exclusion. Encountering Development (1995), arguably Arturo Escobar’s most influential book, provides systematic analysis of development discourses and governmentality in Latin America and explores a new era of ‘post development’ that can be gleaned from pluriversal...

Expression of Concern over Russia’s Violation of UN Charter in Ukraine

The recent Russian invasion of Ukraine is a both a humanitarian crisis and a violation of the UN Charter, which mandates “respect for sovereignty,” “preservation of territory,” and “prohibition of the use of force.” The lives of the elderly, children, women, men, and many others are threatened not just in Ukraine but also in Russia. We are deeply concerned about this situation and strongly hope that a peaceful solution through dialogue and negotiation are...
