Although socialism/communism has historically been a revolutionary attempt to break with society’s capitalist colonial political and economic organization, the class divisions, patriarchy, gender binary, and heteronormativity have persisted within fraternity and unity. For these reasons, this issue simultaneously focuses on questions about the relations between socialism, feminism, and decolonial struggles, between post-socialism of the 1990s and postcolonialism after World War II, the state of the new fast-growing turbo-capitalism, and decolonization. The origins of today’s political and economic situation in the Balkans can be traced to colonial/imperial history’s imprints, which permeates the entire space. Today, through continuously changing logics, it organizes capitalist differentiation, dehumanization, and plunder. Processes that have taken place and continue to do so under the auspices of the European Union and its directives that are implemented together with local collaborationists ensure the racial configuration and reproduction of Europe as white, Christian, and “European.” Simultaneously, racism also works in the direction of the division between migrants and local racialized groups, which, through these processes, stand with whiteness against migrants.
