Why nonviolence and resistance works better than military interventions? —Erica Chenoweth

Muller Hall, Cinema Europa, Zagreb

Related to International Peace Day (21st September) CPS/Peace Studies organized a public lecture aimed to open a public dialogue about the consequences of violent interventions and wars and emphasize the interrelation of wars, social and economic instabilities and migrations. Erica Chenoweth emphasized arguments for nonviolent social changes as movements and interventions open to the involvement of many different people, which don’t put physical obstacles (like police and military interventions). The 20th program of the non-formal educational program Peace Studies (2017–18) was launched at this event.
