Combining Nonviolent Action and Peacebuilding

Combining Nonviolent Action and Peacebuilding

Citizens around the world are using nonviolent action to push for social change. The recent anti-government protests in Iran are just one example, as are movements for peaceful and fair elections in Kenya and Honduras. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and others refined and implemented these nonviolent strategies and tactics during the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, and they can be combined with peacebuilding approaches to transform violent conflict abroad. To commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, the U.S. Institute of Peace is hosting a series of expert panels on Facebook focused on this combination of peacebuilding and nonviolent action.
 

Detailed below, each part of the series will address different aspects of nonviolent action and peacebuilding. Join each discussion live on Facebook from 11:30am – 12:30pm on January 16, 17, and 18.
