Wednesday 13 March 2024, 17:00-18:30 | Social Sciences S0.19 | In-person

Please fill out the form below to register for this event.

The lecture will focus on ANEKED's journey showcasing growth across physical, geopolitical, and digital spheres, rooted in local activism emerging from repressive conflict zones. Championing women and marginalised voices, notably as a women-led entity, ANEKED occupies spaces in transitional justice. Venturing into unexpected arenas like universities, Lesley strives to drive discourse, from local to global, aligning with critical perspectives on global inequalities and development and its significant implications on the global South.

The event will be followed by a reception with refreshments.
