The Future of Nonviolence

The theory and practice of nonviolence includes a wide variety of philosophies, theologies, practices, and strategies. What does the future hold for these? Are the past successes of nonviolent movements adequately remembered and celebrated? Do they inspire fresh commitments and strategies? What do recent advances, realizations, and discoveries in all disciplines mean for reducing violent conflict, achieving nonviolent social change, and bringing about a just peace for more people and communities? What threats do present geopolitical realities pose to these prospects? What are the most relevant and enduring sources of nonviolence, both philosophically and historically? Have some forms of nonviolence become outmoded, unworkworkable, unwise, or untrue? Where does belief in and felicity with nonviolence need to be renewed? Historically, how have people’s commitment to nonviolence been revitalized?

The goal of this one day conference is to address questions such as these by considering the future of nonviolence.
