We are facing a global crisis of rising authoritarianism. Yet, as numerous grass-roots movements have proven, citizens substantively challenge autocratic government structures from below. This session offers an exchange of first-hand accounts between pro-democratic organisers and asks what is needed to become more effective in addressing authoritarianism globally.
