Webinar: “The Crisis of Martial Law,’ by Dr. Josen M. Diaz

Come and join us in our webinar series this Fall 2022 on Martial Law.

Dr. Josen M. Diaz will talk on “The Crisis of Martial Law” in a different angle. Her presentation reconsiders martial law (in the Philippines) as both a political tactic for navigating a “a world [that] has grown more perilous” and where “problems have become more complex and critical” and as authoritarian historiography.
