The Castle Lecture Series - Rights and responsibilities on campus and in our professions: protest and free speech

Kathryn Sikkink, Ryan Family Professor of Human Rights Policy, Harvard Kennedy School and Carol K. Pforzheimer Professor, Radcliffe

Kathryn Sikkink proposes that effective protest must not drown out opposing voices. Looking at instances of successful protest and drawing on her own experience protesting a speaker at an academic conference, Sikkink highlights the importance of being strategic in the choice of tactics to avoid alienating potential supporters or inadvertently winning supporters for the other side.
