Dr. Martin Luther King’s Path to Peace: Reclaiming and Renewing Nonviolent Responses to ‘Globalized Crises’
Violence from global conflict is on a steady rise. War, oppression and other miseries have uprooted 60 million people, the greatest human displacement ever recorded. Foreign policy debates include calls for solving these problems with military action or other force. Dr. Martin Luther King believed that only nonviolent action can ultimately build peace and justice. But how?
On April 4, the somber anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination, join a USIP forum on ways to reclaim and re-frame nonviolent action against 21st-century global conflicts, extremisms, and injustices that fuel them. Researchers and activists will discuss their recent or forthcoming books on nonviolent action and join an audience-wide conversation and poll.
