"Civil Resistance and the Dynamics of Nonviolent Conflict" is a professional level course developed by ICNC and presented under the auspices of the United States Institute of Peace.
This course is designed to provide an in-depth and multi-disciplinary perspective on civilian-based movements and campaigns that defend and obtain basic rights and justice around the world - from Egypt to Burma, from Zimbabwe to West Papua. The course will ex-amine such questions as: What is civil resistance? What determines the success or failure of a civil resistance movement? How can professionals in the field better understand and analyze what elements are at work when civilians use nonviolent tactics? How and when should external agents – governments, NGOs, media, business – act or not act when civil resistance is gaining momentum? How can the dynamics and history of civil resistance better inform the fields of conflict management, development, diplomacy, and peacemaking?
COST: $195. Participants not based in Washington, DC are responsible for their own accommodations and travel, including visas.
CREDIT: Participants will receive certificate upon completion of course.
