Editorial

At the time this issue of Global Dialogue was being edited the US elections were one of the main topics in the media around the globe. In the meantime, we know that they have led to a post-Trump era but this does not mean that the problems witnessed by the US in the last years will not remain. In the section ‘Talking Sociology’ Margaret Abraham conducts an interview with the sociologist and Black Lives Matter activist S.M. Rodriguez. It gives insight into the history of resistance against racism in the US, and the intersection of social inequalities and concerns of social justice motivating this social movement. In regard to the developments around the elections Peter Evans and Michael Burawoy organized our first symposium on the plight and possibilities in the US. The articles cover historical perspectives on US “racial capitalism” and analyze the effects of economic and political developments of the last decade, including declining welfare, challenging relations between the working class and communities of color, ecological problems and climate change as well as the disastrous effects of Trump’s politics leading to the shocking January events in Washington...

In the section ‘Talking Sociology’ Margaret Abraham conducts an interview with the sociologist and Black Lives Matter activist S.M. Rodriguez.

In regard to the developments around the elections Peter Evans and Michael Burawoy organized our first symposium on the plight and possibilities in the US. The articles cover historical perspectives on US “racial capitalism” and analyze the effects of economic and political developments of the last decade, including declining welfare, challenging relations between the working class and communities of color, ecological problems and climate change as well as the disastrous effects of Trump’s politics leading to the shocking January events in Washington. Facing this plight the authors also discuss what might be done to make change possible.

In our second symposium, focused on Chinese migration in Europe and organized by Fanni Beck and Pál Nyíri an overview of the history and present of the successive waves of Chinese migration to Europe is presented. The articles analyze the status of these migrants as well as the complex interethnic relations in European countries, and show how they are influenced by the political developments in China and how the COVID-19 pandemic affects their situation as well as the discourse on migrants.

Over the last years, we have been witnessing the increasing influence of far-right movements, parties and regimes for which the effects of neoliberalism, economic crises, unsolved problems of social inequalities and migration have been windows of opportunity. In the theoretical section, Walden Bello compares facets of the political programs, practices, and leadership of the far-right in the Global North and South.

Our section presenting the sociology of different regions focusses on Latin America. Esteban Torres organized a collection of articles inviting us to a voyage through social theories discussed and developed by prominent researchers, most of them active members of the working group Teoría social y realidad latinoamericana (Social Theory and Latin American Reality) of the Latin American Council of Social Sciences (CLACSO).

In the Open Section Global Dialogue’s Polish translation team introduces their members and thereby gives insight into the variety of our collaborators’ background and research interests.

We take this opportunity to express our thanks to Christine Schickert for her most valuable work as Assistant Editor for Global Dialogue, and welcome Walid Ibrahim (University of Jena, Germany) as her successor.
