DICE 2019 | Tossing the Master's Tools, a talk by Dr. Emilia Roig, Executive Director of the Center for Intersectional Justice (CIJ)

What does transformation look like? Oppressive patterns permeate all areas of life, including left wing movements and politics. Toxicity and domination can be overcome. If we shift our resources and power in another direction, from reacting to dismantling and rebuilding we can escape reproducing the patterns inherited from the oppressors. It's easier said than done, but therein lies the power of liberation.

Emilia Roig is the Founder and Executive Director of the Center for Intersectional Justice (CIJ), a Berlin-based organisation combatting intersecting forms of inequality and discrimination in Europe. She is faculty member of the Social Justice Study Abroad Program of DePaul University of Chicago and has taught graduate and post-graduate courses on Intersectionality Theory, Postcolonial Studies, Critical Race Theory and International and European Law. She holds a PhD in political science, a Master of Public Policy and an MBA from the Humboldt University of Berlin, the Hertie School of Governance and Jean Moulin University of Lyon.
