Even if nonviolence and civil resistance have not been central within International Security Studies and have not been given as much attention by scholars as armed conflicts have, nonviolent civil resistance processes are gaining importance and visibility, and research in this field of study has also increased. This working paper analyses the theoretical and political development of nonviolent civil resistance processes through the different conceptualisations and characteristics of nonviolence and civil resistance, as well as its potential as a conflict transformation tool.
