Capitalism in Crisis and Its Alternatives: A Conference Report

A recent three-day conference in New Delhi brought together leading radical scholars with their perspectives on the global crisis and opportunities for radical transformations. While there was agreement that the crisis is a serious challenge to the hegemony of the United States and the present architecture of international capital, there was also soul-searching of how to build radical alternatives to the current political and economic systems. It was also a rare occasion to engage with major Marxist scholars from an anti-Stalinist perspective.

The conference was funded jointly by the Indian Council for Social Science Research, Indian Council for Philosophical Research, Department of Political Science of Delhi University, Department of Sociology of New York University and the Popular Education and Action Centre.

United States President Barack Obama’s recent visit to New Delhi coincided with another significant event in the political and academic history of the city – an international conference on “The Global Crisis and Hegemonic Dilemmas” on 8, 9 and 10 November 2010, which saw the participation of leading left wing political and economic experts from around the world.
