Trans-national networking as well as processes of partial de-coupling of such networks in some regions lead to new conflicts over the allocation and the constitution of physically, normatively, and virtually constituted spaces in Africa.

Gandhi’s teachings, especially his concept of non-violent resistance, have received renewed attention during recent uprisings, notably in the Arab world. The Frankfurt Gandhi Talks 2011 will focus on what influence his teachings had on peaceful revolutions and what perspectives the concept of non-violent resistance can offer to movements striving for democracy and human rights world-wide. Activists from Egypt and Serbia, who have experienced peaceful revolutions, which in turn are more closely interwoven than commonly known, will be discussing with the German audience.
