Challenging and Changing Institutional Abuses of Power
This event aims to draws on examples of unequal and harmful power dynamics that result in various forms of abuse across different organisational and institutional spaces and highlights the strategies being utilised to challenge them. By not limiting the event to the institutional abuses of one specific institution, we hope to draw out the similarities and differences in the conditions, behaviours, relations, and actions that facilitate abuses of power across multiple institutions and in relation to a range of social groups and abuses. In doing so, we aim to drive discussions towards opportunities and strategies for challenging such abuses.
