The PKK is mostly seen in the context of the Kurdish question and the Kurdish liberation struggle. However, the activities of this revolutionary party in Kurdistan have important ramifications far beyond the Middle East, as the PKK is developing socialist perspectives for the 21st century which are broadly applicable to all struggles. This seminar will focus on the particular socialist ideology and practice of the organisation.

This event will be another installation in the Webinar Series 2021: Ocalan’s Paradigm hosted by the Network Women Weaving the Future. It will be held on 18 May 2021, at 7:00pm GMT.
