Event: "What if Gandhi had a Smartphone?," Wednesday, December 5 12:00-1:00 PM EST, International Center on Nonviolent Conflict

Presented by: Dr. Joseph Bock
Director of Global Health Training at the Eck Institute for Global Health, University of Notre Dame, and Author of "The Technology of Nonviolence"

Engaging in nonviolent resistance for political transformation during Gandhi's struggles in South Africa and British India has many similarities to more modern approaches.  Some people claim that social media is the main ingredient.  Is that correct?  What technologies are most important?  What else is needed for the success of nonviolent movements that social media cannot provide? Can't technology also be used by oppressive governments and troublemakers?  Can't they use the information on digital maps that everyone else can see on the internet?  And what happens when cell phone and internet services are interrupted or shut down completely?

This webinar will cover the limits of technology for nonviolent resistance movements and will offer insights about ethical dilemmas. Register now: http://nonviolent-conflict.org/index.php/learning-and-resources/edu...
