About the course:
What explains the outbreak of nonviolent conflict? The aim of this course is to deepen the understanding of the causes, dynamics, strategies, tactics, and outcomes of nonviolent, popular-based insurrections, that is, strategic nonviolent conflicts. The focus is on large-scale campaigns against governments, for goals such as regime change, territorial change, or end of foreign occupation. Key concepts like nonviolent mobilisation, political jiu-jitsu, backfire and radical flanks are highlighted.
