Description: Using a number of examples in the last few decades, we will lay out instances when hardship endured by a population leads to grievances and when grievances and protest give birth to civil resistance movements. These movements may emerge spontaneously or as a reaction to outside events but they are sustained by using their internal attributes, mainly their capacity to mobilize people and resources. This is why we will focus on the process of transformation of a protest to a movement where a strategic approach is being adopted and long-term planning and coalition building are being developed.
