RSVP required by 5PM September 23

Timothy Garton Ash - Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution; author, "The Magic Lantern: The Revolutions of 1989 Witnessed in Warsaw, Budapest, Berlin & Prague", co-editor, "Civil Resistance and Power Politics: The Experience of Non-Violent Action from Gandhi to the Present"

In this public lecture, Timothy Garton Ash asks if 1989 established a new model of non-violent revolution, supplanting the violent one of 1789. Where might it happen next? Should democracies support it? If so, how?

Professor Norman Naimark, McDonnell Professor of East European Studies; Senior Fellow, Hoover Institution and Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, will chair the discussion. Kathryn Stoner-Weiss, Deputy Director, Center on Democracy, Development and the Rule of Law, Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies, will be the respondent.
