"Christ gave us the goals and Mahatma Gandhi the tactics" said Marthin Luther King Jr. Mahatma Gandhi's revolutionary method of Satyagraha, based on truth, non-violence and justice has inspired and continues to inspire numerous political and social struggles throughout the world. On his 150th Birth Anniversary, we propose to re-examine the relevance of his ideas in resolving the conflicts of the 21st century.

Marking the 150th Anniversary of Gandhi with a panel of distinguished speakers followed by a presentation by Dr Subodh Kerkar and a drinks reception.

The Institute of Global Affairs (@LSEIGA) aims to maximise the impact of LSE's leading expertise across the social sciences by shaping inclusive and locally-rooted responses to the most important and pressing global challenges.

The event will be followed by a drinks reception.
