This Leverhulme Visiting Professorship Lecture is hosted by the University of Cambridge Centre for Gender Studies.
Stephen Brown (University of Ottawa)
When and how should international actors become involved in defending LGBTQI+ rights in countries in the Global South? In this talk, Professor Stephen Brown, Professor of Political Science, University of Ottawa will first explore the problematic motives and means that often underpin Northern/Western countries’ interventions. He will then outline a more fruitful approach, centred on local rights defenders’ perspectives, priorities and initiatives, while recognizing the obstacles to the proposed alternative.
The lecture will be followed by a Q&A, chaired by Dr Lauren Wilcox, UCCGS Centre Director and a drinks reception. All are welcome to attend.
Professor Stephen Brown is the UCCGS Leverhulme Visiting Professor for 2021-22, Visiting Fellow at the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) and Visiting Fellow at Clare Hall, Cambridge.
