About this capture
Cato Upcoming Events http://www.cato.org/events/calendar.html events@cato.org The Cato Institute seeks to broaden the parameters of public policy debate to allow consideration of the traditional American principles of limited government, individual liberty, free markets and peace. Toward that goal, the Institute strives to achieve greater involvement of the intelligent, concerned lay public in questions of policy and the proper role of government. en-us​Mon, 18 Apr 2011 16:00:00 -0400 Civil Resistance and Revolution in the Arab World (Policy Forum)​http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/CatoEvents/~3/aF317y6Fi4U/event.php​<p></p> <p><p>What explains the swift collapse of what were considered some of the most stable regimes in the Arab world? Drawing on scholarship and his Center's experience in supporting pro-democracy activists in Egypt and around the world, Peter Ackerman will describe factors &#8212; such as strategy and careful planning &#8212; that are common to successful civil resistance movements. According to Ackerman, nonviolent campaigns have a better record at bringing down dictators than violent confrontations. Jack Goldstone will describe the conditions that give rise to revolutions, highlight the vulnerabilities of "sultanistic" dictatorships, and identify which Middle Eastern regimes are most likely to retain power.</p></p><div class="feedflare"> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:yIl2AUoC8zA"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?d=yIl2AUoC8zA" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:dnMXMwOfBR0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?d=dnMXMwOfBR0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:F7zBnMyn0Lo"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?i=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:F7zBnMyn0Lo" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:V_sGLiPBpWU"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?i=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:V_sGLiPBpWU" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:qj6IDK7rITs"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?d=qj6IDK7rITs" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:l6gmwiTKsz0"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?d=l6gmwiTKsz0" border="0"></img></a> <a href="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?a=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:gIN9vFwOqvQ"><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~ff/CatoEvents?i=aF317y6Fi4U:fLcD8I1mJYw:gIN9vFwOqvQ" border="0"></img></a> </div><img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/CatoEvents/~4/aF317y6Fi4U" height="1" width="1"/>
