Using Technology in Nonviolent Activism against Repression

Using Technology in Nonviolent Activism against Repression. U.S. Institute of Peace. Kelly McKone et al. January 8, 2015.

In an era of crackdowns on freedoms of peaceful assembly and association, what role can technology play in strengthening nonviolent civic mobilization? How can activists strategically apply the full range of technologies to build and sustain movements where the options for nonviolently resolving conflicts are diminishing under increased repression? The report explores avenues for engagement between activists and external actors to use technology in support of movement building. [Note: contains copyrighted material].
