Social resilience in the face of political volatility: lessons from the global south

By January 16, 2018 No Comments

The Centre for Global Research at RMIT University organised a panel discussion to explore the question of how some communities and towns resist violence in the face of significant political volatility. PaCSIA members Dr Anne Brown, Dr Volker Boege and Dr Joseph Hongoh were the discussants. Moderated by RMIT’s Dr Charlie Hunt, the panel discussion drew on case examples from Africa and the Pacific to highlight experiences of resilience in face of weak formal institutions of the state and changing social relations.
