Thank you for posting.

ACAS and the Department of Political Science cordially invite you to a  
talk by Prof. Emeritus Benedict Kerkvliet on:

Repression and Toleration of Political Dissent in Contemporary Vietnam


Public criticism of state officials and policies which has grown
considerably in Vietnam during the last dozen or so years, ranges over
many issues, and emanates from several sectors of society. This talk
will focus on several dozen regime dissidents. After synthesizing
their main criticisms and objectives, the presentation will analyze
state authorities' actions towards the dissidents. That analysis
reveals repression but also a lack of uniformity in the repression and
a surprising degree of toleration.
