Moderator: Nicola Barrach / Director of Civic and New Media Initiatives, International Center on Nonviolent Conflict
Date: Wednesday, June 19th, 2013
Time: 2:00pm – 3:30pm
Description: This session is panel discussion with selected participants about civil resistance and human rights, exploring the fundamental role that nonviolent movements have played in securing and codifying most of the rights that are today recognized as universal. It is no exaggeration to say that civil resistance is both the creation and exercise of universal human rights. This includes preventing and opposing new forms of oppression. It is also the means by which new rights can be claimed and already established rights must be defended. A number of cases highlighted in this session will illustrate how civic movements and campaigns can benefit from and use human rights-related legal and institutional frameworks to advance their goals.
