- Under a Vast Sky, Beyond
On this episode of RadioActive we looked to a different side of the world. Hong Kong. The Umbrella Movement. Collective Action. Continued Colonialism…. And the power of University Students.
Dr. Winnie Chan joined us to share her new paper entitled “From Moment to Movement: Empowerment and Resilience as a Framework for Collective Action in Hong Kong”. Dr. Chan took us through the current and historical context of Hong Kong, how the Hong Kong fight for liberation is linked to broader policy and history, and how empowerment and resilience inform the initial and sustained involvement in movement work in the Hong Kong context. We also discussed how her research can inform movement work around the world as we are in an important historical moment. The more we know, the better the resistance can be. Science plays an important role in how we conceive, implement and sustain social movement and social change efforts.
