Daniel Loick teaches political and social philosophy at the University of Amsterdam. He works on critical theories of state-violence as well as subaltern forms of sociality. In his recent publications he is specifically concerned about the different functions of the police as a governmental institution and the implications of it's monopoly on the use of force. In his lecture titled "POLICE ABOLITION AND RADICAL DEMOCRACY" he will provide an insight into the utopian thought how to abolish the police and establish a society without state power. In his research he is rooting this thought back to the abolitionism as the radical political 19th-century-movement to end slavery in the United States.
