CARE is delighted to share our third and upcoming collaboration with Activist-In-Residence: Dr. Murdoch Stephens.
Dr. Stephens is the editor of publishing collective Lawrence & Gibson. He has a PhD on critical theory and climate change from Massey
University, and was the driving force behind the double the refugee quota campaign, which is now government policy. He has published dozens of opinion editorials, academic articles and book chapters on New Zealand’s refugee quota and the country’s response to the refugee
crisis. He recently completed a PhD focused on how four contemporary critical theorists have written of climate change. A version of that work was published as Critical Environmental Communication: How does critique respond to the urgency of climate change? in 2018 by Lexington.
During his time with CARE, as an activist Dr. Stephens will deliver:
Public Talk: ‘For who, by who? Reflections on campaigning and prospects for refugee led organisations in an expanded refugee quota.’
Workshop: On starting, continuing and excelling in a DIY, grass roots political campaign.
White Paper: The state helps the refugee speak: dialogue, ventriloquism or something else?
