Successful PhD defence by Seohee Kwak

'Public action in Vietnam: Between toleration and repression'

On 7 April 2022, Seohee Kwak successfully defended her PhD thesis on 'Public action in Vietnam: Between toleration and repression'

Seohee Kwak argued that political action cannot be taken at face value in the context of authoritarian rule. She provided a wide-ranging account of people’s opportunities for and repertoires of political action in the institutional setting of the Vietnamese single-party regime.

She found that people’s opportunities for and repertoires of individual and collective political action are limited and precarious, due to unpredictability in the party-state’s discretionary responses between toleration and repression.
