This workshop will investigate the theory, strategy, tactics and goals of modern non-violent protest. The program will review the logic and tactics of civil disobedience campaigns from the past century in order to understand how methods have changed to respond to and to stay ahead of state counter-protest efforts. Recent and near term advances in technology, including the risks and rewards of social networking platforms and mobile technologies, will also be discussed. Additionally, we’ll look at the current legal environment for civil disobedience, how protest has changed with the War on Terror, and what legal and economic risks protesters face.
