THE PEACE+JUSTICE STUDIES INITIATIVE AT STANFORD UNIVERSITY
invites you to its inaugural conference

NONVIOLENT ACTION AMIDST VIOLENT CONFLICT

Fri.-Sat. May 30-31, 2014
Fisher Conference Center, Arrillaga Alumni Center, 326 Galvez St.

Attention to nonviolence in theory and practice has gone far beyond pious invocations of Gandhi or sonorous soundbites from Martin Luther King, Jr. Nonviolent action, from principled to pragmatic, is studied by political scientists, strategists, activists, historians, ethicists, and psychologists, among others. How effective is it? How do nonviolent and armed resistance intersect in particular struggles? What does morality have to do with it? How far-reaching are the transformations that are being sought?

Co-sponsored by the Center for African Studies and
Martin Luther King, Jr. Research and Education Institute
