Nonviolent methods

Gene Sharp (1928-2018) looked at thousands of specific examples of nonviolent episodes and campaigns and identified 198 methods. He categorized them under two major headings, “Nonviolent Protest and Persuasion” and “Noncooperation.” Under those major headings are many specific categories, such as “Symbolic Public Actions” or “Actions by Consumers.”

The Global Nonviolent Action Database from Swarthmore College catalogues real examples for each of the 198 methods. You can browse the methods and choose one or more that you would use in a real or hypothetical scenerio.
