EQUAL Day 2019

Law and|or Civil Disobedience

Octobre 17, 2019 - Brussels - Flagey

Civil disobedience and its relationship to the law

This method of action raises a number of important fundamental questions, which we would like to explore with you.

Is disobedience a right? And, if it is, what place should we give it? What place is there for the disobedient in the face of justice in a state of law?

Where do we draw the line between disobedience and insurrection, violence or even revolt? Is civil disobedience only a mode of action, or an end in itself?

Is this mode of action capable of convincing public opinion, of transcending society’s disagreements to express a common will?
