Key Note speech at the Peace Justice Conference
“Western racialist politics and the dehumanising of minorities in Europe”
My presentation looks at how Western’s construction of race is inscribed within modern wars on the Global South, and the way in which postcolonial migrants are dehumanised.
Overall, I argue that the success of colonial projects and contemporary ideologies such as the “ clash of civilisation” is sustained through the ideology of racialisation and domination of minority groups.
