As a matter of fact, there is! It is called the Center for Applied Nonviolent Action and Strategies (CANVAS) and was founded in Belgrade by Srđa Popović, a youth activist who helped topple Slobodan Milošević in 2000.

He spoke with Metropole’s Margaret Childs about his fascinating work in such countries as Burma, Egypt, Georgia, Iran, Tunisia, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe. Watch the full debate:
