Handbook for trainings in Nonviolence and Social Transformation (first edition)

This handbook is part of the training material on mobilization for change put together by the NOVACT – International Institute for Nonviolent Action. It has been conceived as support for carrying out workshops directed to people actively engaged in the design, organization, and putting forward of campaigns or nonviolent social movements for social justice. More precisely, this edition is designed for a series of 14 and 18-hour workshops that will be carried out with social movements and campaigns on both shores of the Mediterranean, especially for Lebanon, Palestine, Egypt, and Spain.

The material we hereby present combines practical exercises, applicable to the organization of our movements, with theoretical reflections on different aspects that we have highlighted as most relevant for this transformation process. This handbook is just a starting point for reflection and action inside our organizations, and around issues that normally appear at the core of our movements.
