Oxford has received three grants to fund research into the influences and effects of civil resistance movements of the 20th century. The project is a joint venture between the University’s Centre for International Studies and the European Studies Centre of St Anthony’s College, and will be holding workshops and a conference over the next two years. Professor Sir Adam Roberts of Balliol college, who is chairing the project, said “it’s an interesting subject because the question of whether, and if so how, major change can be brought about without war has been a central concern of writers on politics and international relations for centuries.”ARCHIVE: 1st week MT 2005
