“An intellectual never retires. He should make hisself useful if he enjoys privileges like mine.” – Jean Ziegler

Unfortunately, the famous Swiss globalization critic, sociologist and internationalist Jean Ziegler had to withdraw his confirmation to speak at our conference as he will take part in a UN meeting at the end of october. Nevertheless, he wants to support our goal to enhance the internationalist cooperation between Europe and Latin America by agreeing to serve as patron of our conference.

Ziegler showed his solidarity with progressive political actors in many respects. In his book „Gegen die Welt“ (Against the Order of the World), he analyzed the chances and perspectives of liberation movements in Latin America and Africa in a critical-constructive fashion. In the last 15 years, Ziegler stressed the importance of Latin American left-wing governments in the struggle against the catastrophic consequences of neoliberalism and the respective achievements in the struggle against hunger.
