Jamila will speak on: Nonviolent Resistance in the Global Struggle to Defend Democracy and Human Rights
Recent years have witnessed a proliferation of nonviolent movements and an expansion in the use of nonviolent means to address diverse political problems, including to defend the rights of minorities and oppressed communities, advance environmental and human rights campaigns, and to preserve democratic freedoms and institutions. But in spite of this expansion, as a field, nonviolent resistance continues to be neglected, and as a technique and type of social and political action, the phenomenon is not well understood, including by policymakers, journalists, academics, or citizens or institutions in our societies.
By drawing from selected contemporary and historical movements, we will explore the lessons that can be gained from global movements to face current challenges in the fight to advance human rights and defend democratic rights, institutions, and norms.
Doors open at 5 pm with a cash bar and networking opportunities.
