This event is organized by the Justice in Southeast Asia Lab (JSEALab). The JSEALab is a five-year (2021-2026) project combining exchange among faculty, graduate and undergraduate students at UW and public-facing events that aim to foster significant collaboration between academics and practitioners around social justice in Southeast Asia. The JSEALab was established out of the recognition that there is a need for academic work to be directly responsive to ongoing social justice crises in the Southeast Asian region.
