Dr Irm Haleem Assistant Professor and School Academic Integrity Officer (SAIO)
Dr Irm Haleem
This is an article for a philosophy journal that examines why and how alliegence to a resistance group (whether secular or religious) gives rise to a peculiar, often dismissed, paradox. In this article, the author conceptualises resistance and show how and why resistance, as a human phenomeon, is so intricately tied to the existential strugges for individual and social recognition, and how this desire for recognition inevitably creates the paradox of resistance.
