Rojava: An Alternative

The Rojava Revolution is a progressive, directly democratic experience that emerged amid the chaos of the Syrian Civil War. Developing in the largely-Kurdish areas of northern Syria since 2012, the experience aims to create unity between all ethnic and religious groups in the region. It also advocates the equal participation of women in political processes and defends women’s rights staunchly.

Towards the end of 2014, I began to investigate the historical context of the Rojava Revolution and look at the political philosophy it sought to foster. This process culminated in the publication of the following book:

Rojava: An Alternative to Imperialism, Nationalism, and Islamism in the Middle East
