Eine Veranstaltung der Graduate School of East Asian Studies.

Lynette Ong is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto, Department of Political Science and the Asian Institute, Munk School of Global Affairs.

Professor Ong’s theoretical interests are authoritarian politics and the political economy of development. She studies contentious politics and repression in China, particularly with respect to land acquisition and housing demolition, and has a broader interest in how social mobilization take shape in authoritarian countries, and the nexus between protest and repression in non-democratic settings.
