Abstract: In this paper we develop a theory of non-abelian cohomology for proalgebraic groups which is used in J. Amer. Math. Soc. 24 (2011), 709-769 to study the unipotent section conjecture. The non-abelian cohomology $ H^1_{\mathrm {nab}}(\mathcal {G},\mathcal {P})$ is a scheme. The argument $ \mathcal {G}$ is a proalgebraic group; the coefficient group $ \mathcal {P}$ is prounipotent with trivial center and endowed with an outer action of $ \mathcal {G}$. This outer action uniquely determines an extension $ \widehat {\mathcal {G}}$ of $ \mathcal {G}$ by $ \mathcal {P}$. With suitable hypotheses, the scheme $ H^1_{\mathrm {nab}} (\mathcal {G},\mathcal {P})$ parametrizes the $ \mathcal {P}$ conjugacy classes of sections of $ \widehat {\mathcal {G}} \to \mathcal {G}$.
