ADEP Ltd and Another Development Foundation are working in collaboration with The Swedish Fellowship of Reconciliation with an inquiry on nonviolence, how knowledge on nonviolence can be communicated and used by civil society for the purpose of social change. The partners have started this exploration through dialogue in earlier collaborations – partly organized by the think tank and do tank Another Development Foundation which invited Lotta Sjöström Becker, the general secretary for The Swedish Fellowship of Reconciliation, Stellan Vinthagen, professor at University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA and advisor to Another Development Foundation as well as citizens from The City of Umeå and the County of Västerbotten. The inquiry has recently started and will end in September or October 2019. The results of the study will be used by the partners for organisational development.
