Nonviolent Action and the Struggle for Land: Experiences in India and Brazil

Kurt Schock (Associate Professor of Sociology, Rutgers University)
Monday, November 24, 2008, 4:30 p.m.

Scheuer Room
Kohlberg Hall
Swarthmore College

Prof. Kurt Schock <> is
author of /Unarmed Insurrections: People Power Movements in
Nondemocracies/ (University of Minnesota Press). “He is currently
researching land reform and land rights movements in the global south.
He is examining how various methods of civil resistance, such as protest
marches and land occupations, are being used to promote a more equitable
distribution of land and resources. He is also interested in how
constructive programs such as rural cooperatives and small-scale
sustainable agriculture are being used to promote agrarian reform. More
broadly his research seeks to understand how methods of nonviolent
action and ‘people power’ movements are able to successfully challenge
state domination and economic exploitation.”
Light refreshments will be provided.
