Kriesberg op-ed on nonviolent conflict published on CounterPunch

Kriesberg,-Louis"Making Change Nonviolently," written by Louis Kriesberg, professor emeritus of sociology, was published on the CounterPunch website. "Overall, the evidence is clear that social movements seeking substantial change that rely on nonviolent methods are more likely to achieve their objectives than are those movements that resort to violence," says Kriesberg. "After all, violence usually prompts counter violence by the more powerful, which suppresses the effort to change the pre-existing conditions." 05/04/18
