ICNC solicits grant proposals from individuals and groups and supports educational initiatives (such as developing educational resources, online courses, translations and curricula; convening workshops and educational gatherings; and developing and sharing knowledge) about civil resistance.
Translating civil resistance literature into diverse languages is one of the most powerful ways to spread knowledge and increase the effectiveness of nonviolent movements struggling for rights, freedom, and justice. Learn more about our translations program.
Curriculum Development & Teaching Support
ICNC supports faculty, educators and practitioners in developing curricula and teaching classroom-based and online courses on civil resistance for university students, professionals and activists around the world.
High School Curriculum Fellowships
This program supports high school teachers in developing and incorporating curricula on civil resistance into existing junior- or senior-level social science and history courses.
ICNC supports the development of and publishes peer-reviewed monographs (that average about 15,000-17,000 words in length [60-70 pages]). Each monograph builds on in-depth research on a particular topic and is written with the aim of reaching both practitioners and academic audiences.
ICNC supports research and writing of shorter publications on subjects of civil resistance that are relevant and accessible to a broader policy community, including policy experts, decision makers and international governmental and non-governmental practitioners.
ICNC Webinar Series
ICNC offers a webinar series focusing on critical ideas, case studies, and questions related to civil resistance and nonviolent movements. ICNC welcomes proposals and submissions for new webinars.
Learning Initiative Network (LIN) program
Between 2014-2016, ICNC ran our Learning Initiative Network (LIN) program, which supported the work of individuals and teams who are strongly committed to learning and spreading knowledge about civil resistance in their communities. In 2017, rather than hold a fourth consecutive LIN fellow cycle, ICNC is offering additional support and mentoring to past LIN fellows and others through our new competitive Small Grants program. We may re-establish the LIN program in the future.
