Call for Paper: Symposium on “Social Resistance in Non-Democracies”

May 9, 2021 - 04:18

The Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies, Lund University will be organizing an international symposium on “Social Resistance in Non-Democracies” from 24 to 26 November 2014 at Lund, Sweden. This symposium aims to understand different types of social resistance in non-democracies, and to what extent they have yielded significant political claims. How and why are some social resistance movements successful in eliciting reactions and compromises from the state, while others do not?Through analyzing case studies from Asia, this symposium also compares the active and dynamic power relationships between social resistance actors and the regimes, as well as reactions of the regimes towards these resistances.
The symposium features invited lectures and peer-reviewed paper presentations. The scope of the symposium includes but is not limited to the following themes:
  • Case studies of social resistance from Southeast Asia, East Asia, or South Asia.
  • Types of social resistance in non-democracies
  • Relationships between social resistance agents and the states
  • State reactions towards social resistance
Interested speakers are invited to submit paper proposals. There will be no registration fees for participation in the symposium. The Centre for East and South-East Asian Studies will cover the cost of travel, hotel accommodation, and meals in Lund for qualified presenters.
