Greetings Liberation Tech Community!

I wanted to pass along the annual call for applications to the Fletcher
Summer Institute for the Advanced Study of Nonviolent Conflict
a joint executive education program put on by International Center on
Nonviolent Conflict <> and The Fletcher
School of Law and Diplomacy. This rigorous, week-long interdisciplinary
program explores the theory and practice of strategic nonviolent conflict
(a.k.a. civil resistance) and how it has shaped both history, as well as
the conflicts of today and into the future.

The institute brings together a dynamic group of activists, scholars,
journalists, policy makers, and members of civil society from all over the
world for an intense and gratifying week!

I hope you will share the announcement with friends and colleagues you
think might be interested.

If you or anyone you know has questions about the program or how to apply,
please feel free to have them email me in the coming weeks.


*Apologies if you already received the announcement*

Nonviolent Conflict*

 * Deadline to apply is February 16, 2015   *
     The Fletcher Summer Institute for the Advanced Study of Nonviolent
Conflict (FSI)
is the leading executive education program in the world focusing on the
advanced, interdisciplinary study of civil resistance.

 Civil resistance campaigns for rights, freedom, and justice are capturing
the world's attention as never before. Campaigns to protect democracy in
Hong Kong, for women's rights in India, for indigenous rights in Latin
America, for police accountability in the United States, against violence
in Mexico, against corruption in Cambodia, against growing autocracy in
Ukraine and against dictatorship in Burkina Faso are all examples in the
last year of a profound global shift in how political power is developed
and applied.

 Since 2006, over 400 participants from more than 90 countries have
gathered at FSI to learn and share knowledge. The program is taught by
leading international scholars, practitioners, organizers and activists
from past and current struggles. It provides both a firm academic grasp of
the subject of civil resistance as well as a practical understanding of the
use of nonviolent struggle in a variety of conflicts for a wide range of
goals. Organized in conjunction with the Fletcher School of Law and
Diplomacy at Tufts University, the program offers a certificate in the
Advanced Study of Nonviolent Conflict.

* When:  June 7-12, 2015Where:  The Fletcher School, Tufts University,
Boston, Massachusetts, USA   Deadline:February 16, 2015 *
