Hi all,

On behalf of organisers Thomas Baudinette (INTS), Amy Barrow (Law) and Sara Fuller, (GEOP), CAVE invites you to a workshop on:


Macquarie University, Sydney, 14-15 November 2019

with keynotes from Assoc Prof Lynette Chua and Assoc Prof Edmund W Cheng

The Activism, Rights and Justice Research Stream would like to invite interested colleagues and students across the Faculty to our forthcoming international workshop Modes of Activism Under Authoritarian Governance Regimes in the Asia-Pacific. The workshop will be held on 14-15th November in Room 149, 7 Wally’s Walk. The workshop is sponsored by the Faculty of Arts Research Office and the Centre for Agency, Values and Ethics.

With two keynotes from Assoc Prof Lynette Chua of the National University of Singapore and Assoc Prof Edmund W Cheng of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, this interdisciplinary workshop brings together scholars with research expertise on activism in the Asia-Pacific to explore how civil society actors navigate diverse authoritarian spaces. The workshop will posit alternative theories of civil society organising and activism with a view to building a nuanced and regionally specific understanding of activism.

Prior to the conference, we have also organised a free screening of the documentary film Our Youth in Taiwan on Wednesday 13th November, 5.30-8.45pm at 10 Hadenfield Avenue in the T1 Theatre.
