Fletcher Summer Institute

Applications are now available for the Fletcher Summer Institute for the Advanced Study of Nonviolent Conflict (FSI). This is the only executive education program in the interdisciplinary study of nonviolent conflict, taught by leading scholars and practitioners of strategic nonviolent action and authorities from related fields. This program offers a certificate in the Advanced Study of Nonviolent Conflict that draws upon its multidisciplinary approach to global affairs.

Since the program was founded in 2005, more than 300 individuals from more than 50 different countries have come together during this week-long seminar and shared their experiences. They have learned all about non-violent conflict, which is under-recognized in most history books and contemporary news media, as well as the fact that many hold widespread misconceptions about its use.

Watch the video below to get an overview of what this program encompasses.
