Webinar: Resist fundamentalisms and fascisms in Asia-Pacific

Four activists from Asia Pacific share their analysis of the advances of fundamentalist and fascist forces across the region.

This discussion addresses the following questions:

  • How are anti-rights forces operating in Asia-Pacific? How are they gaining support?
  • What are the impacts on gender justice and human rights in the region?
  • What does collective resistance look like and how can we strengthen it?

The conversation was led by : 

  • Rima Athar (Chair): Coordinator of the Coalition for Sexual and Bodily Rights in Muslim Societies (CSBR)

With presentations from: 

  • Cristina “Tinay” Palabay: Secretary General of human rights group Karapatan in the Philippines

  • Rozana Isa: Executive Director of Sisters In Islam, Malaysia 

  • Chayanika Shah: a queer feminist researcher, teacher, and activist based in Mumbai, India. 

This is the fourth webinar of the #RightsAtRisk series, discussing the findings of the Rights at Risk report from the Observatory on the Universality of Rights (OURs). This series aims to put light on our collective resistance at the local and international levels.
