Spring School on Social Movements
The second training School of Entitle will be held at Lund University and focus on understanding theoretically social movements and reflecting on the skills necessary for doing research on – and with – social movements.

Even though the School (March 30 to April 04) is restricted to Entitle fellows and selected external PhD students most of the sessions are open to any want who wants to learn. The school will include presentations by Entitle faculty, including a talk by Joan Martinez-Alier and Alf Hornborg on the results of Environmental Justice Organizations, Liabilities and Trade project; visits to social and environmental groups in the cities of Malmö and Copenhagen; and a plenary talk by renowned critical economist Massimo De Angelis on the movement for the defense of the commons among others.
