Feedback form is now closed.
Across Asia, countries with different dominant religious practice are experiencing increasing religious nationalism. Individuals and groups who publicly identify with other religious and secular identities have been threatened and attacked with increasing frequency. What vectors of online organization contribute to this phenomenon? What patterns are evident across the region? We invite voices from Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, India, Myanmar, Pakistan, and elsewhere in a discussion to understand, explore counter-narratives and identify strategies for staying safe in these uncertain environments.
