Natasha Basu examines the concept of civil disobedience against the background of political and economic globalisation. She focuses on a number of assumptions relating to non-violent action, remedial versus revolutionary aims, citizens as agents of disobedience and civility. Some of the cases examined include the civil disobedience campaigns of Martin Luther King and Mahatma Gandhi, citizen-smuggling in the case of unauthorized migration, and cases of feminist disobedience such as Pussy Riot in Russia, Seed/Water Satyagraha in India and the women only Umoja Village in Kenya.
