Thirty Years since Tiananmen Square Massacre: Struggle for Democracy in China
The conference "Thirty Years since Tiananmen Square Massacre: Struggle for Democracy in China" will be held on 18 April, which will mark the day when students gathered in Tiananmen Square and delivered their Seven Demands to the National People's Congress thirty years ago.
This event will bring together academics and activists researching on China to explore topics including the struggle for democracy in China as a rising global power, the significance of 1989 pro-democracy protests and the state crackdown against it, the legacy of 1989 for contemporary democratic (im)possibilities in China, the struggle between demands for rights and state focus on order and stability, and contemporary challenges in mainland China as well as contested lands that are homeland of Uyghurs and Tibetans.
