ICNC now accepting applications for Fletcher Summer Institute

    The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict (ICNC) is now accepting applications for the sixth annual Fletcher Summer Institute (FSI), which is the “only executive education program in the advanced, interdisciplinary study of nonviolent conflict, taught by leading scholars and practitioners of strategic nonviolent action and authorities from related fields.” The week-long conference will take place from June 19-25, and the application, which is due by March 15, can be downloaded here.

    I had the good fortune of attending FSI last summer and could not more highly recommend it. The presentations – many of which can be watched here – were top-notch and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know the other participants, who were from 29 different countries. If you want to really dig deep into the exciting field of civil resistance, there is no better place to start.
