How Civic Mobilizations Grow in Authoritarian Contexts: a Comparative Study of 21 Recent Mobilization Episodes

December 6 @ 9:30 am - 10:45 pm

A new report from Freedom House analyzes how civic movements organize and expand in countries governed by authoritarian regimes. How Civic Mobilizations Grow in Authoritarian Contexts examines 21 recent examples of these movements to determine the factors that helped or hindered their growth. In addition to a rich comparative analysis, the report draws on in-depth case studies of recent civic mobilizations in Belarus, Sudan, Ethiopia, and Vietnam. The report contributes to a growing body of research on nonviolent movements and provides recommendations for practitioners and activists.

Join us for a presentation of the report findings and a panel discussion about the implications of those findings.
