This course focuses on the history and practice of social movements based on the use of militant non-violence. We will start with exploring the role of M. K. Gandhi in elaborating a practice of non-violent people’s power in the first half of the twentieth century and will go on to trace the legacy and development of this practice in political and social movements across the world, including the “people’s movements” of 2011: the Arab Spring and the various Occupy movements. Our aim in the course will be to reflect on both the question of the choice of means to achieve the desired ends and the creative adaptation of non-violent people’s power for our times.
