THE END OF EUROPE’S WELFARE STATE?
A Conversation on the Future of Social Democracy - Nov. 25, 7pm
The RLS–NYC presents in collaboration with Jacobin Magazine a conversation between Petter Nilsson from Sweden’s Vänsterpartiet (Left Party), distinguished scholar of social democracy Sheri Berman from Barnard College, and social scientist Adaner Usmani from the New York University on the future of social democracy in Europe and beyond.
As Seth Ackerman’s 2012 essay “Europe Against the Left” put it, the default mode of left politics in Europe in the past four decades has been a narrowing of political horizons. “This path has led from François Mitterrand’s 1972 Common Program, with its exuberant call to ‘changer la vie’ via a ‘rupture’ with capitalism, to his ‘U-turn’ into austerity a decade later, to his helpless plaint a decade after that, when pressed on France’s endless mass unemployment, that ‘we tried everything.'”
