ICNC is working to develop Regional Institutes on the Study and Practice of Strategic Nonviolent Action in partnership with local organizations in key regions of the world. These Institutes will offer activists, practitioners, educators and academics opportunities to engage in structured and applied learning on civic organizing, mobilization and dynamics of nonviolent struggles for rights, freedom and justice.
The first Regional Institutes will be launched in 2018.
Upcoming Regional Institute:
Regional Institute on the Study and Practice of Strategic Nonviolent Action
Univeristy of Flasco, Quito, Ecuador. February 19-24, 2018
This bilingual, English & Spanish, Regional Institute on the Study and Practice of Strategic Nonviolent Action offers practitioners and academics alike a great opportunity to learn about, and reflect on, ways to achieve social change nonviolently. Participants will learn how strategic nonviolent action can shift the existing balance of power and increase awareness of issues of injustice with the goal of bringing about positive change. Case studies of nonviolent movements throughout Latin America and the world will also be explored, including a field trip to a local community mobilized and engaged in nonviolent actions. The Institute is organized by FLACSO Ecuador, CEMPROC, Pontificia Universidad Católica del and the International Center on Nonviolent Conflict and will take place in Quito, Ecuador from February 19 to 24, 2018.
