Call for Participation
Workshop on Universities as Sites of Activism and Protection & UNESCO Chair Launch
13- 14 March, 2023
We are delighted to invite you to a workshop on University-Civil Society Collaboration to Protect Activists and Enhance Political Space, to be hosted by the Human Rights Defender Hub, Centre for Applied Human Rights (CAHR), University of York, on 13-14 March 2023.
Universities have much to contribute to activism and protection. They have legitimacy, status, access to knowledge and resources, and local and global networks. But universities are also elite and complex institutions, characterised by value clashes, contradictory pressures and hosting multiple actors (students, academics, management, admin staff). While not ignoring the challenges, this workshop will showcase the progressive potential of university-civil society collaborations: at the frontline of protests (Turkey, Iran); integrating activists into teaching and research to provide new forms of knowledge and support activism; and providing various forms of protection (of activists, values, and different forms of knowledge).
The event will include the launch of the UNESCO Chair in Protection of Human Rights Defenders and Expansion of Political Space, to be held at CAHR, which particularly focuses on the role of universities. A Working Paper titled Universities as Sites of Activism and Protection will be circulated in advance, and will provide a point of reference for discussions. The workshop will co-produce the first draft of an Action Plan for Universities as Sites of Protection, to outline the future work programme for the UNESCO Chair and its partners.
