International Center on Nonviolent Conflict
Given political oppression in many regions of the world, what explains the emergence of nonviolent movements in some countries but not others? Furthermore, what are the skills that nonviolent movements use in order to build movements and unify populations? This session will examine these and related questions, and address issues such as the development of movement discourse, capacity building, and the creation and expansion of political space.
