What can we learn from the “worlding” of Europe? Will Europe be able to avoid increasing violence? And what would be needed for this? If this is not an abstract danger, what forms would/does it take? How are they gendered and what circulation does this gendering have? Drawing on European and Sri Lankan contexts and scholarships, the conversation will be an exchange of ideas on Europe’s discursive and material foundations, their newly emerging narratives and impact on Europe and the world.
