Free ICNC webinar on history of civil resistance next Monday

    Next Monday, Jørgen Johansen, who is a lecturer and faculty member at Syracuse University in Strasbourg, France, will be leading a free webinar, hosted by the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC), entitled “Civil Resistance from Gandhi to Present Time.” According to the announcement, Johansen will:

    ….present a short history of what civil resistance have achieved the last 90 years. This is the history of societal conflicts handled with peaceful means. How can unarmed movements succeed against states with their police and armies? What are the building blocks of a successful nonviolent strategy?

    It will include a discussion on the recent development in Northern Africa and Middle East. What can be expected in the time to come and what are the main obstacles when a movement moves from ‘opposition’ to ‘position?’

    The webinar will run from 12-1pm EST. To reserve your place, click here. And if that time doesn’t work for you, ICNC will post the video of the presentation on their website afterward.
