Erica Chenoweth

Erica Chenoweth, assistant professor of government, recently gave a webinar for the International Center for Nonviolent Conflict titled “Why Civil Resistance Works.” The presentation is drawn from research which will be used in Chenoweth’s upcoming book, Why Civil Resistance Works: The Strategic Logic of Nonviolent Resistance, which she is writing with Maria Stephan. The book is set for publication by The Columbia University Press in 2011.

Chenoweth’s research interests include terrorism, the outcomes of nonviolent and violent protest, the consequences of political violence, democratization and repression.
