Proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis, but we encourage earlier submissions. Our earliest available slot is for March 2019. 

The International Center on Nonviolent Conflict welcomes the submission of presentation proposals for our Webinar Series on Civil Resistance for 2019. ICNC’s Webinars are a series of online individual and group presentations, combined with Q & A discussions with participants, on critical ideas, cases, and questions related to civil resistance and nonviolent movements. Webinars are streamed live and the recordings are posted on ICNC’s website for future viewing.   

Webinars are delivered by selected scholars, educators and practitioners who research, study, teach or write about civil resistance, interact with activists or practice civil resistance.

Please see a list of topics for potential webinars that are of interest to ICNC. 

ICNC offers a modest honorarium to webinar presenters that ranges between $200 to $400, depending on the number of presenters in a webinar and speakers' experience. 

Our Webinars are intended for scholars, activists, organizers, educators, members of  the media, policymakers, practitioners, and students. Since the series began in 2010 we have reached thousands of participants from around the world.

Visit the ICNC webinar page to view a full list of past webinar recordings.

Civil resistance is understood as a nonviolent struggle that civilians undertake using a range of nonviolent methods – including, but not limited to, marches, strikes, boycotts, noncooperation, civil disobedience, building alternative institutions – with the aim of winning human rights, establishing greater accountability, social justice, and more inclusive, nonviolent democratic spaces.
