In coordination with the Euro-Mediterranean University in Slovenia, ICNC is proud to offer the academic seminar, Power and Dynamics of Civil Resistance.
Postgraduate students and others interested in any of the broadly defined subjects on the role and impact of non-state actors, and purposeful agency, civil society organizations, social movements, civic mobilization, nonviolent actions and civil resistance.
This course is designed to provide an in-depth and multi-disciplinary perspective on the dynamic of civilian-based movements and campaigns that defend and obtain basic rights and justice, halt political oppression and facilitate democratic transitions and accountable governance. The course will examine the nature and attributes of civil resistance, its historical record and effectiveness when compared to that of violent insurgency, factors that determine successes as well as failures of civil resistance, common misconceptions and framing of civil resistance with a specific emphasis on skills, strategic planning and tactics vis-a-vis structural externalities, long-term effects of civil resistance on democratic transformation and sustainability and new, emerging areas of civil resistance studies such as curbing extreme violence, stopping corruption, promoting equitable and sustainable development, media faming of civil resistance or women's rights movements.
The course will be delivered on the basis of blended studies; a combination of face-to-face meetings and on-line self-learning implemented through individual review and study of electronic and audio-video resources that will be uploaded into the ICNC moodle system (e-classroom) and available for the students a week before the seminar. Next to presentation of the main concepts, the seminar will also include game exercise, documentary viewing, case studies and class discussions.
