(Late Breaking Panels)
Participatory Publics: Civil Society, Pluralist Discourses,
and People Power in Asia
Friday, March 17 - 12:45pm - 2:45pm
Sheraton Centre Hotel - City Hall, 2nd Floor
Even as many governments around the world attempt to clamp down on civil society activity, we continue to see examples of people coming together to advocate for change and protest injustices. This Asia Beyond the Headlines panel will examine the state of public engagement in activism and protest in Thailand, Pakistan, China, Timor-Leste, South Korea, and Hong Kong, and how government leaders have responded to those actions. Tyrell Haberkorn (Australian National University) will moderate a discussion among Fayyaz Baqir (McGill University), Diana Fu (University of Toronto), Gabriela Leite-Soares (Catalpa International, Timor-Leste), Nan Kim (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee), and Sebastian Veg (EHESS).
