In the last year, we have seen several coups d’état across the world, from West Africa to Southeast Asia. While executive power usurpations are characterized by military support, there are several measures civil society and pro-democracy movements can take to counter and block coup leaders’ procedures. In this panel, we will hear from leading experts on nonviolent strategies, as well as civil society leaders who will share how advocates, non-governmental institutions, and the international community can help counteract coups and restore democracy.
