This webinar formally launches ‘Transnational Civil Society in Asia: The Potential of Grassroots Regionalization’ (Avenell & Ogawa, eds.) which will be published July 2021, by Routledge.

This book addresses an understudied topic in the current civil society scholarship – how transnational interactions among civil society actors in Asia are helping to strengthen common democratic values.

The webinar discusses three cases from the book, along with a brief conceptual introduction.
