The transformative capacity of collaboration between academics and activist offers a pivotal anchor for local-national-global resistance. In the white paper on academic-activist partnerships, Dr. Sue Bradford and Professor Mohan Dutta draw from their journeys in academia and activist organising to examine the intersections, synergies, challenges to, and lessons for academic activist partnerships. Questioning the meaning of collaboration and the nature of collaborative spaces in social change, the authors offer a conceptual framework for collaboration that joins in solidarity with the struggles of the oppressed.

Drawing upon the fieldwork carried out by the research team, and based on our academic-activist collaboration with Braema Mathi, CARE is releasing a series of White papers. The first White paper is positioned as an advocacy brief for social change communication addressing sexual violence on University campuses globally. The paper outlines communicative practices for addressing sexual violence on University campuses as well as communicative strategies for advocacy directed at bringing about change.
Earlier this year, CARE held its first conference “Communication for Social Change: Intersections of Theory & Praxis” and it was a successful turnout. We had high profile speakers, conference participants from around the region and community members to grace the event and everyone learnt a lot from the 3 days of sharing knowledge and experiences with one another. In case you missed it, here are some recordings for the first day of the conference. Watch this space for the recordings of the rest of the days.
