VIDEO: C-SPAN coverage of IPSI's "Why Here, Not There? Investigating emerging nonviolent movements"


Watch “Why Here, Not There?” featuring Jack DuVall and William Zartman in it’s entirety online:



The International Peace & Security Institute (IPSI), in collaboration with The Johns Hopkins University SAIS Conflict Management Program, hosted a high-level panel discussion and networking reception on Wednesday, August 17.  The event, “Why Here, Not There? Investigating emerging nonviolent movements,” examined the dynamics that enable nonviolent movements to occur in some regions and not others at specific moments in time.  The event was broadcast live nationwide and on the internet by C-SPAN. The panelists included:

Jack Duvall                              International Center on Nonviolent Conflict
Dr. Cynthia Irmer                    DoS Office for the Coordinator for Reconstruction and Stabilization
Gimena Sánchez-Garzoli       The Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA)
Dr. William Zartman               The Johns Hopkins University SAIS Conflict Management Program


Each panel discussant gave an overview of his/her region/topic of expertise before the floor was opened up to general Q&A.  The panel and Q&A was roughly 90 minutes long with a networking reception (food, beer, wine) afterwards.  In line with IPSI’s mission of thought leadership on peace and security issues for the next generation of global leaders, the audience consisted mostly of young academics, practitioners, and advocates in the conflict management community. The event was open to the media, and C-SPAN provided national live coverage.
