The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC) is an independent, non-profit educational foundation that develops and encourages the study and use of civilian-based, nonmilitary strategies aimed at establishing and defending human rights, democratic self-rule and justice worldwide. The ICNC mission is to develop and share knowledge related to civil resistance and its practice with interested recipients throughout the world. This includes activists living under conditions of repression, injustice and corruption, as well as educators, students, scholars, members of nongovernmental organizations, media professionals and larger policy community. In response to the rising demand for knowledge of civil resistance around the world, ICNC works on developing regional institutes on the study and practice of nonviolent action together with local partners. ICNC has successfully launched the Eastern European Regional Institute and the Latin American Regional Institute in 2018.
