IPSS Political School, Summer 2008

The school consisted of four sessions spread out over two days, the 23rd and 24th of August, ’08.

I was lucky enough to be invited and found it a great forum for interacting with scholars and thinkers I’d heard much of (a few I’d even read) but never met or certainly not in a setting where they were so accessible.

One of the nice things about the school was that it was organised specifically with youth activists in mind, people who had participated to some extent in the groundswell of support for the movement for an independent judiciary and an end to Emergency Rule.

In addition to links to the reading material which was provided to the participants before the school, you can also listen to the sessions (both the talks and the discussions that followed) at the IPSS page. Both streaming (from imeem) and downloading from the IPSS site are supported, depending on whether you have a blazing fast connection or a slower one you can use to download the file for listening in one go (like on your mp3 player).
