March 22, 2022: Panel Discussion - Civil Resistance in the Ukraine and the Region

How does civil resistance work and what can it achieve? This panel will share how civilians are using strategic civil resistance to diminish the power and impact of the Russian military. In Ukraine, civilians replace road signs to confuse Russian military vehicles, they block roads with cement blocks and iron pins, and they have set up a complex humanitarian aid system with neighboring countries. Within Russia, protests and resignations by universities, media outlets, and professionals denounce the military invasion. Join the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies to learn more about the strategy of civil resistance in Ukraine and the region. Panelists include leading experts in civil resistance, some joining us from the frontlines in Kyiv.
