Protests in Perspective: On the Streets for Social Justice—Lessons from the Past
2020 Protests in Perspective: A Webinar Series Sponsored by the Open Society University Network (OSUN) and Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs
12:00 pm – 1:30 pm EST/GMT-5
The global wave of protests for racial justice did not occur in isolation or in a vacuum. Is this social movement like others in history? Or is it unique? What can be learned by looking at past protests with similar characteristics? This panel will consider the 2020 protests in light of the legacies of colonialism, self-determination, and previous struggles for universal human rights. Moderator: Neil Roberts (Williams College). Panelists: Adom Getachew (University of Chicago) and Michael Canham (Office of the Governor, Gauteng, South Africa).
