Around the world protests have proliferated in recent years, increasing in both intensity and frequency. Many movements have been created overnight, formed without leaders, or even any set of defined goals.

On this week’s episode, Richard Youngs, senior fellow at Carnegie Europe and the author of “Civic Activism Unleashed: New Hope or False Dawn for Democracy?,” discusses how civic activism has changed over the years and what leads to lasting change with WorldAffairs Co-Host Ray Suarez.
