DHP P246M: Civil Resistance: Global Implications of Nonviolent Struggles for Rights and Accountability

Course Description

This module is an in-depth conversation about (i) civil resistance – understood as a nonviolent struggle that is planned and waged by ordinary people – and (ii) the power of civil resistance to bring about major political, economic, or social change. This course will address how and why civil resistance movements work, their historical record and outcomes, and the strategy and dynamics of asymmetric conflicts waged by civil resistance movements. Drawing from this basis of understanding, we will look at how knowledge of civil resistance can better inform foreign policy formulations, including external assistance to civil resistance movements.
