What's the difference between a right and an opportunity in Burma, and how do people resist or refuse the blunt biopolitics employed by its military rulers? In this episode, Elliott Prasse-Freeman, Assistant Professer of Sociology and Anthropology at the National University of Singapore, discusses his new book Rights Refused: Grassroots Activism and State Violence in Myanmar, published by Stanford University Press, which investigates activists' lives in the years preceding the 2021 military coup, and after.
