The Castle Lecture Series - Rediscovering Individual Responsibilities in the Age of Rights

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

Lecture 3 - Rights and responsibilities on campus and in our professions:  Free speech and protest

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.
