Join our Conversation on Discord

Dear Writers, Readers, Supporters, and Followers

When we started “Quo Vademus”, it was always about creating a community of like-minded people and the idea that, despite us being perceived as “too young” and “inexperienced” we together can create change.

It was also about transparency, building something together, networking, starting a discussion, and creating a room for conversations. But most importantly it was about the personal connection.

Over the last weeks, many of you were asking about meeting the team and other members of the network and we were looking for the right tool. We think by creating a community-owned Discord server, we will be one step closer to achieving that.

On Discord, we have text-channels as well as voice channels. Public as well as private ones. Rooms where we can meet other people with shared interests and discuss topics, news, ideas, thoughts, as well as “Quo Vademus” itself.

Especially during this Pandemic, some of us are forced to spend more time at home. We therefore want to give you a place for valuable social interactions and a chance to network.

So just drop by on our Discord channel! (https://discord.gg/qrx6nVxtCh)

Stay safe and see you later!

Is there a Global Post Colony?

Uniting all post-colonies as a global post-colony is a notion that diminishes the historical, historiographical and cultural differences present in each post-colony around the world. Therefore, unifying colonial legacies and treating them as a homogenised unit disregards their experiences, which damages their diverse yet relative historical progress. Instead, one should aim for an alternative perception of understanding a global post-colony, as the idea is not completely unworkable but provides a strong epistemological foundation to combat Western hegemonic discourses.

Who does the ‘Women’s Strike’ actually fight for?

On the 22nd October 2020 the Polish constitutional court ruled that the act of aborting a foetus with serious birth defects is unconstitutional. Protests, resembling ones from 2016 broke out all over the country sparking international recognition and support, but also strong criticism from opposition groups such as pro-life or catholic organisations. Nevertheless the 2020 'Women's Strike' adresses issues that go beyond the abortion ban and thus it should be recognized for what it actually stands for, an attempt to safeguard the democracy ad rights of an entire nation.

Orbán’s Fidesz party is undermining gender equality in Hungary

Self-proclaimed “conservatives” and members of the far-right like to promote the archaic worldview that women should be homemakers while men go to work to provide for their families. Recently, Orbán's Hungary made the international headlines once again because the government-allied economic watchdog of the parliament released a report full of such sexist claims and narratives.

China’s quiet yet steady deals in Argentina

As of 2010, Argentina became one of the main exporting countries of soybean oil and flour. Since then, its commercial ties with China have multiplied: in 2014, the Latin American country gave China a significant part of its land to build a Space Station and, a year earlier, the Argentine state paid a billion dollars for Chinese wagons. Currently, the Asian country is targeting the Paraná River waterway, the installation of hog farms and hydroelectric power plants in Patagonia.
