Teaching Model: Nonviolent Transformation of Conflict
Nonviolent action can be effective even in acute conflicts. Teaching Model: Nonviolent Transformation of Conflict presents a framework for use by instructors in teaching students the basic theoretical and historical background of nonviolent action and successful practice of it. The model assumes a twelve-week term for teaching one topic, or module, per week for final-year undergraduates, but it can also be adapted for graduate work. Each module contains a note to lecturers discussing crucial background needed to lead a class on the topic, expected outcomes in student learning, concepts relevant to that particular module, suggested class activities and exercises, and recommended readings on each topic. The framework allows instructors to add resources from their own country and to encourage students to write case studies about local nonviolent campaigns and document breakthroughs by area non-governmental organizations.
