This paper examines the relationship between a transnational non-state actor, the International Fellowship of Reconciliation (IFOR), and the EDSA Revolution of 1986. Investigating the events that took place prior to the revolt, Aguirre argues that IFOR helped shape the outcome of EDSA through its assistance in mobilizing the nonviolent anti-Marcos movement in the years prior to 1986. First, at the structural level, following the death of Ninoy Aquino, favorable conditions both domestically and internationally offered political opportunities for anti-Marcos movements to work closely with IFOR operatives. Second, the series of fora, seminars, and workshops organized by IFOR from 1984 onwards helped raise awareness (and a sense of agency) about the principles and methods of active non-violence. Thus the mobilization of anti-Marcos movements became possible during critical moments in the revolution. It further opened political opportunities domestically (increased political access after the snap elections, realignment of anti-Marcos elites, participation of influential allies, the lessening of political repression, and greater reach for the media), culminating in the historic events of February, 1986.
