Workshop:
Civil Disobedience Beyond the State II:
The Digitalization of Disobedience from Whistleblowing to Anonymous
Berlin, May 8-9, 2015

From the Civil Rights Movement to Occupy, civil disobedience is an essential
part of the history and present of liberal democracies. At the same time,
however, this form of protest has remained theoretically and politically
contested. Currently, there are two central and interrelated phenomena that
are triggering a significant transformation of civil disobedience:
globalisation and digitalisation. Jointly, they raise new theoretical and
political challenges that require a rethinking of civil disobedience beyond
the state. With this workshop – the second in a series of three – we aim at
contributing to this rethinking from a variety of interdisciplinary
perspectives.

The focus of this workshop is on the emergence of digital tactics of civil
disobedience. More recently, two digital practices have emerged as prominent
new forms of civil disobedience, thereby challenging the traditional
understanding: Anonymous and Whistleblowing. In three sessions with
presentations from our speakers followed by a set of short comments and an
open discussion we will address the digital turn of civil disobedience and
its implications for political theory.
