The collaborative struggle and the permeability of settler colonialism

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This special issue gathers presentations given at the ‘Collaborative Struggle’ international conference

    held at the University of Wollongong on 24–25 of September 2012, together with other

    contributions. The conference was supported by the Institute for Social Transformation Research

    at UOW, which over recent years has been the base for a rich critical research culture. Though

    convened to discuss different aspects of joint collective action – or ‘collaborative struggles’ –

    as a way of exiting not only colonial divisions and more generally oppressive relations in contemporary

    societies, most presentations at the conference focused on struggles for decolonisation in

    Australia and Israel–Palestine. We learnt from these presentations on the similar role the communist

    party played both in Australia and Israel–Palestine as an agent of change, and we also learnt

    more broadly on the history and the present of the collaborative efforts undertaken by natives and

    settlers to overcome the divides that settler colonialism has forced on them in these regions
