We are scholars, activists, students, researchers, trainers, teachers, adherents, advocates of nonviolent action. Initiated by Nonviolence International, the website is co-sponsored by many similar organizations.
We hope the site will fulfill a number of needs including:
a) a stronger global community of activists/scholars sharing information;
b) a venue to have conversations and plan together;
c) a resource to explore new practices and approaches in the field of nonviolence;
d) a site for teaching, training and pedagogy;
e) a site to respond to nonviolent activists who face dire threats.
The network supports a diversity of points of view about nonviolent action and nonviolence. We currently operate in English but would welcome blogs in other languages.
If you are interested in blogging or contributing but have not done so before, please contact us and we’ll help.
