Global Nonviolent Action Database (GNAD)

Go to to access a free global database of nonviolent actions.  Campaigns are drawn from nearly every country in the world, in which people overthrew dictators, changed environmental policies, halted racist discrimination, fought for economic justice, established their religious freedom, changed sexist and other oppressive laws, established national independence, and defended their neighborhoods – all by using nonviolent resistance.  Included are cases in which the campaign failed so that learning can be gained from these cases.

The database was envisioned and is managed by George Lakey, activist, professor and CSOP 2011 Instructor.
