The Goal of Project Nirbhaya
The goal of this project is to explore how digital devices and platforms contributed to the processes of civil resistance that unfolded after the Nirbhaya case study. This peace research project seeks to identify how applications and access to social media platforms enable the creation of self-forming, self-organizing resistance movements capable of sharing alternative discourses in advocating for diverse social agendas. After all, widespread participation and a networked environment increases the likelihood of the success of campaigns of nonviolent resistance and shapes the individual’s identity and awareness as an activist and the relationship to both power and resistance.
