Conference topic

Political violence and social change:

The focus of this Common Session Programme is how social change and reform are collectively pursued and how the institutional apparatus responds to collective action. Strategies for social change may be violent and/or nonviolent, as can be state reactions to them. Papers on a wide range of related topics are welcome, including: social movements, political protest, violent institutional responses to social struggles, terrorism, state violence and war. Theoretical contributions are also encouraged, for example: religion and violence, philosophical interpretations of violent conflict, theories of social change, nonviolent contention, conflict and emancipation, strategies of liberation.
