​​We have the pleasure of inviting you to a public policy event on The Policy Implications of Nonviolent Direct Action

Nonviolent political movements have played a major role in many prominent events in modern history, including the US civil rights movement, the struggles against British domination in India and Apartheid in South Africa, the Arab Spring uprisings, as well as campaigns for national self-determination including Catalonia and Quebec. The policy event aims to disseminate and engage in discussions of academic research on nonviolent direct action, a phenomenon that has attracted increasing attention in recent years from both scholars and the policy community in general.
