Nonviolent Resistance: Still Relevant?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Is the 20th Century approach of Martin Luther King Jr relevant?  Does nonviolent resistance require a larger-than-life leader?  In the Baltics, Russia, Asia and the Middle East, we find compelling examples of nonviolent struggles for freedom.   When have these succeeded and when have they not?  Will there be more or less nonviolent civil resistance in the 21st Century?

Mary Elizabeth King

Professor of Peace & Conflict Studies, University for Peace (UN-affiliated)
Working alongside Martin Luther King Jr in the 1960s, Mary Elizabeth King hardly guessed she would become a lifelong student, practitioner, author, and professor of nonviolent action.  Since then she has studied nonviolent transitions in India, Eastern and Central Europe, Palestine, Africa, and elsewhere. She won the 2009 El-Hibri Peace Education Prize for this and for her contributions towards social justice in the Middle East.
