Overview and metadata sections
The Center for Nonviolent Conflict Resolution was the result of a three year grant from the National Institute of Mental Health to develop a "social-psychological analysis of nonviolent direct actions." It was founded and spearheaded by A. Paul Hare of the sociology and anthropology departments. The project included analysis of campus violence and official responses, nonviolent lifestyles, and nonviolent revolutions. The Center incorporated Haverford's pacifist Quaker heritage and strove to provide research for both academic and activist purposes. The Center sent members to conflict hot-spots around the country.
Materials in the collection include both publications and more informal reports. Numbering of reports is not consistent, and reports with the same number do not always represent the same content. Materials cover a wide range of topics related to nonviolence; many of the reports are written from a sociological viewpoint, while others focus on developing bibliographies and other lists of resources. Field notes contain reports from those Center members who had gone to observe centers of conflict.
Materials are arranged by the type of publication.
