3. Minds of the Movement blog
ICNC is proud to present the Minds of the Movement blog. The blog features ideas and experiences of people on the front lines of civil resistance, and those who seek to understand the art and science of nonviolent struggle. Minds of the Movement is a forum for people interested in this growing field, including activists, scholars, students, journalists, and members of the INGO and policy community. The blog will keep readers up to date on the latest developments in civil resistance around the world.
4. Nonviolent Conflict News
Nonviolent Conflict News (NVCNews) compiles news coverage of civil resistance around the world — focusing on trends, ideas, and the actions of movements and campaigns nonviolently struggling against oppression, dictatorship, and the denial of rights. The site consists of news stories that have already been published in a wide range of independent and mass media outlets in which objective information can be found. Each story is accompanied by a summary drawn from articles’ original text, prepared and edited by the site editors, that highlights the story’s relevance to the dynamics of civil resistance, to a specific movement or campaign, or to the larger context of such events.
5. Webinar Recordings
Since 2010, ICNC has offered a webinar series of online talks on critical ideas, cases, and questions related to civil resistance and nonviolent movements. Every webinar is recorded and freely available to the public.
