The South Asian Regional Institute on the Study and Practice of Strategic Nonviolent Action offers practitioners and scholars alike a great opportunity to learn about and reflect on ways to achieve social change nonviolently.

The institute’s program is divided into three parts:

  • general knowledge about the dynamics and effectiveness of civil resistance
  • the study of specific local and regional cases of nonviolent campaigns and movements
  • collaborative groups where participants will work together on strategic action plans for campaigns

Participants: This Institute is designed for activists, organizers, scholars, teachers, civil society professionals, as well as civic and political leaders across South Asia.

Presenters: International Center on Nonviolent Conflict, Center for Social Change, Department of Conflict, Peace and Development Studies at Tribhuvan University, and the National Network of the Families of the Disappeared and Missing Nepal

Institute Language: Presentations will be given in English.

Cost: $150. There are limited partial and full scholarships available, especially for grassroots activists without institutional funding. The program fee covers participation in the Asian Action Institute, food, lodging, resource materials, certificates, local transportation and a field trip. Travel or air flight or any visa application expenses are not included in this fee. Participants can apply for a scholarship on a needs basis along with their application.

Application Deadline: The application window closes on Wednesday, February 5, 2020, at 4:30pm Nepal Standard Time (5:45am in Washington, DC)
