Haris Ibrahim

UPDATE: 27 September 2013

This event is cancelled.


Haris Ibrahim has been a key actor in civil society movements opposing the ruling government in Malaysia for the past decade. He has played important roles in social movements such as Article 11, the People’s Parliament, Bersih, Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia (SABM), Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM), Anything But UMNO (ABU) and Black Out 505, all of which have been influential in mobilising Malaysians against the ruling government especially at the 2008 and 2013 general elections in Malaysia.

Haris Ibrahim will be giving a talk at the Australian National University. In his talk, he will reflect on his experience in organising these movements which began long before Malaysia’s historic 12th general elections in 2008, identify some of the lessons he has learnt, as well as offer insights on the future of opposing authoritarianism in Malaysia.
