Capacity Building Workshop 2: Leadership in Civil Resistance Movements: Four Key Roles that Activists Play

Conference Registration

Led by the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, this workshop will focus on four interdependent roles that activists play in movements.  Sometimes these roles conflict.  Sometimes they complement each other. Activists will reflect on their roles within movements, discuss how they can help advance a movement’s agenda, and recognize how they are all needed at different part of a movement’s trajectory.
