Nonviolent Strategy Wheel

If your nonviolent defense or liberation struggle is to be effective, it requires a sound strategic orientation. This, in turn, requires a thoughtfully designed strategic plan. This plan may be generated using the strategic framework outlined on the Nonviolent Strategy Wheel which identifies the twelve components of any strategy. By clicking on each component in the sidebar, you can learn how to identify/plan this aspect of your nonviolent strategy.

Where appropriate, I have included reference (and a link) to a strategy tool that can be used to assist you. I have also identified (and provided a link) where a case study is particularly useful.

Once you have understood the components of strategy illustrated on the Nonviolent Strategy Wheel (which can be downloaded), I suggest that you go to the ‘Political Purpose’ link in the sidebar.
