Glossary

Please see index of glossary terms in the right side-bar.

In an effort to build a common vocabulary and understanding of key terminology often used in the analysis and study of nonviolence, Metta Center is developing a Glossary of Nonviolence Terms. This glossary is largely confined to concepts in the developing theory of nonviolence; only a very few names or place from the history of nonviolence will be found here. For references of this kind emphasizing historical events and people, please see our additional resources section.
