Foreign policy makers often focus on the state, elites and institutions as the primary shapers of political and economic affairs.  Yet, nonviolent civil resistance movements in diverse parts of the world are increasingly impacting politics and economics as well.  As the power of these movements gains recognition among policy makers and the press, there remains a lack of understanding of how such movements actually emerge, evolve, grow, and function. Drawing from contemporary cases and scholarly research, this session will offer a framework for understanding how civil resistance movements develop, evaluate what makes them effective, and discuss considerations for US policy towards them.
A lecture by Dr. Maciej Bartkowski , Senior Director for Education and Research at the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict and by Hardy Merriman, a Senior Advisor to the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict
