Eben Kirksey first went to West Papua in 1998 as an exchange student. During his later study of West Papua’s resistance to Indonesian occupiers and the forces of globalization, he discovered that collaboration, rather than resistance, was the primary strategy of this dynamic social movement. The revolutionaries have a knack for getting inside institutions of power and building coalitions with unlikely allies, including many Indonesians.

This event is free and open to the public. RSVP here.
