Taking the Long View: Civil Society Resistance and Resilience


  • King's Manor York YO1 7EP UK (map)

We will be holding a workshop in York on 4-5 November 2019 on civil society strategies to push back against shrinking space. The workshop will ‘take the long view’ by focusing on 1) empirical, evidence-based studies of civil society resistance and resilience, and 2) historical precedents, lessons and insights of relevance to current situations. Panels will include human rights defenders from Turkey, Mexico, Hong Kong and Brazil. If you could like to attend please email hrdhub@york.ac.uk
