To develop and share concepts regarding the use of civilian-based, nonmilitary strategies that will lead to the establishment and defense of democratic self-rule and human rights.
WHAT WE DO
Acting as a catalyst to stimulate the choice of nonviolent conflict, the Center collaborates with likeminded institutions, nongovernmental organizations and selected agencies 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 or self-determination are at issue.
INFLUENCE POLICIES AND MEDIA COVERAGE
The Center conducts meetings and briefings, co-sponsors conferences, and makes available articles and features, to educate and encourage decision makers to allocate more support to civilian-based, nonmilitary movements. These same tools are used to assist senior media producers and reporters to expand and improve coverage of nonviolent struggles.
PROVIDE FIELD ASSISTANCE
The Center provides assistance in the training and deployment of field advisors, to deepen the conceptual knowledge and practical skills of applying nonviolent strategies in conflicts throughout the world where progress toward democracy and human rights is possible.
