Global Non-violence Network

peace, nonviolence

The Global Nonviolence Network (GNN) is a list of organisations and individuals (many of whom act as official contacts for networks like SERPAJ or WRI) that promote or teach nonviolence. The GNN is published here to facilitate networking among people committed to nonviolence. The list has been compiled (and regularly updated) from many sources over several years. Each organisation or individual, to the best of my knowledge, is willing to act as a contact for anyone seeking information about nonviolence, or is willing to be publicly identified as an advocate of nonviolence. This list is far from comprehensive; it contains about 190 contacts in just 63 countries. I have a supplementary record of many other individuals and organisations that could probably be included but I do not have the time to confirm their suitability or to establish their willingness to be publicly listed. Apart from these omissions, the list does not include, for example, the thousands of action groups that use nonviolence.

The GNN is posted on the World Wide Web at
