Date & time
This is a brownbag session with two special guests, who combine activism and scholarship in the realm of human rights, indigenous rights, self-determination and environmental conservation.
This is an opportunity to hear Joshua Cooper and Chak Sakhorn speak about their goals and their approach, in a governance context that is increasingly hostile to civil society actions in support of indigenous people, human rights and the environment.
Scholars of Cambodia and the region will find this of interest, as well as those involved in environmental, indigenous and human rights research and advocacy.
Professor Joshua Cooper: a Lecturer at the University of Hawai’i, in Political Science & Hawaiian Studies. He is also the Director of the Hawaii Institute for Human Rights, and Assistant to the Rapporteur, UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues.
Dr Chak Sakhorn: the President, Khmer M ‘Chas Srok, a human rights and environmental NGO in Cambodia.
