Description

Paper session Dialogical approaches to the Solidarity movement and memories of Solidarity Solidarity movement, born at the Gdansk Shipyard in 1980, was based on constructive political dialogue that won democratic freedom for Central and Eastern Europe. Paradoxically, twenty years later the premises were sold to private investment funds, transforming democratic agora into a space of fractured political interests, driven by neo-liberal market forces. The paper session theorises a notion of solidarity in dialogical terms and critically explores recent developments and local policies in relation to tradition of the Solidarity movement, its memory and place as a relationally networked stock of public knowledge.
