Short description:
Founded in 2002, ICNC is an independent, neutral, non-profit educational foundation that develops resources and knowledge about the use of civilian-based nonviolent strategies to establish and defend human rights, democracy, transparency, and justice, and to fight corruption.
It disseminates a growing collection of articles, monographs, books, DVD documentaries, translations and a second generation computer-based nonviolent strategy video game, which includes an anti-corruption scenario. ICNC cooperates with educational institutions to convene courses and seminars, such as the annual Fletcher Summer Institute for the Advanced Study of Nonviolent Conflict, Tufts University. It participates in international meetings and symposia, including the International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC). ICNC is also supporting a new one-year research project on citizen campaigns to fight corruption, to be completed in August 2010.
