Action Research


Questions.     We study the experiences of  people  who are experimenting with nonviolence as a tool for social change . We ask question like: What role can nonviolence  have in a a world of global crises? How do people learn nonviolence  and how can it be used to promote peace, justice, and solidarity?


Approach.       Our studies are based on the principles of participatory action research, inspired in the Pedagogy of the Oppressed, and the Structural Dynamic Method, inspired in New Humanism.  Both approaches bring people together in the process of producing knowledge for social transformation.


Productions.     We are committed to research practices and products that are publicly available, collectively owned, and useful to the promotion of nonviolence. To this end we produce data sets,  papers, presentations, tools, trainings and other productions. The presentation below is an example of our work.
