utopiaThe role of academia has always been controversial. On one side Universities are more and more forced to align with the neoliberal agenda; on the other side they are a space of radical thinking. In this session we aim at discussing the role of various actors in building social change, focussing in particular on the possibilities and limits of the exchange between activism and academia in support of the current struggles.
