Talk, From Resignation to Nonviolent Resistance: Tackling the Corruption-Violence-Marginalization Nexus, Georgetown University

March 23, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

From Resignation to Nonviolent Resistance: Tackling the Corruption-Violence-Marginalization Nexus

Corruption is now understood to be linked to violent conflict, poverty, fragility, inadequate public services, injustice, and unaccountable governance. No one understands this better than regular people, who experience these hardships. Looking back, 2015 may well be the year that citizens around the world rose up against corruption, from Afghanistan to Brazil, Guatemala, Iraq, Lebanon, Malaysia, Moldova, Romania, South Africa and beyond.
Join us for a BBL discussion with Shaazka Beyerle, author of Curtailing Corruption: People Power for Accountability and Justice and the accompanying self-study Freedom From Corruption curriculum. She’ll discuss her research on social movements, campaigns, or local civic initiatives targeting graft and abuse, the relevance of grass-roots anti-corruption efforts to conflict transformation and peacebuilding, and policy implications for systemic change, socio-economic development and bottom-up democracy.
Shaazka Beyerle is a Senior Advisor, International Center on Nonviolent Conflict; and a Nonresident Fellow, Center for Transatlantic Relations, SAIS, Johns Hopkins University.
