François Marchand

François Marchand is a Civil Engineer of Mines. He is married and has four children. Since 1974 he has led a professional career in the sector of public transportation in France and abroad. Since 1970, he led an important activity for the development of non-violence : conscientious objector, member of The Movement for a Non-Violent Alternative (MAN) since its creation in 1974, founding member and President of the IRNC (The Research Institute of Non-violent Resolution of Conflict) since 1984. He spearheaded the creation of Non-Violence XXI, of which he is co-President.

He is currently participating in the establishment of a volunteer service for peace in France and in the financing, public as well as private, of French non-violent organizations.

At the IRNC, which he has overseen since 1984, he puts a particular focus on the introduction of non-violence as a form of management and regulation of society, just as much from a national point of view as from an international one.
