About ICNC


The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC)
is an independent, non-profit educational foundation that develops and encourages the study and use of civilian-based, nonmilitary strategies aimed at establishing and defending human rights, democratic self-rule and justice worldwide.

What We Do

Acting as a catalyst to stimulate interest in nonviolent conflict, the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict collaborates with like-minded educational institutions and nongovernmental organizations to:

Educate the Global Public

The Center uses television broadcast networks, the internet, and off-air and offline media to disseminate video programming and books, as well as learning materials for schools and universities. All these resources help promote the history and ideas of nonviolent conflict in open or closed societies where rights, justice, or self-determination are at issue.

Inform Policies and Media Coverage

The Center conducts meetings and briefings, co-sponsors conferences, and makes available articles, books, and films to encourage international institutions and decision makers to facilitate the activity of civilian-based, nonviolent movements. These same tools are used to assist media producers and reporters to expand and improve coverage of nonviolent struggles.

Educate Activists and Organizers

In response to requests, the Center provides support for seminars and workshops in nonviolent conflict attended by activists and citizens who are considering civilian-based, nonviolent action as a way to seek democracy, justice, or human rights. Such workshops impart conceptual knowledge and help develop skills in applying nonviolent strategies devised by such activists.
