This chapter identifies different approaches to power found in mainstream international relations theory and studies of nonviolent resistance. It defines three ideal typical mechanisms of change used by the seven groups of study: institution building, awareness raising, and constructive confrontation. After introducing each of the seven groups of study—the Alternative Information Center, Machsom Watch, Ta'ayush, Rabbis for Human Rights, Sabeel, al Mubadara, and Panorama—and explaining the rationale for group selection, the chapter illustrates how groups used these mechanisms of change in the course of their activities.
