Content

If you are interested in political transformations, social movements and civil society in Asia, this is your course for fall 2014. We get first-hand insights into current political transformations and struggles and how social movements, Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO’s), the media and indigenous people mobilize and organize to claim their rights. We will mix a variety of media genre, like books, newspaper articles and documentary films and footage to get a first-hand and close prospect of the political movements, agents and their strategies to achieve freedom and democratization in Asia. Students will also be able to participate in a conference panel of Asia Dynamic Initiative at our University of Copenhagen on “Human Rights and Civil Society Reconsidered” with famous speakers. The lecturer, Alexander Horstmann, teaches the Singapore IARU summer school “Southeast Asia in Context” this year which is open for new participants for summer 2015.
