The Engaging Peace Conference is an interdisciplinary forum for connecting efforts and ideas relating to the fields of peace studies and conflict resolution. The conference consists of student research panels, workshops, and practitioner sessions. This structure offers students, academics and practitioners a dialectic learning and mentoring environment. The theme of this conference, “Engaging Peace,” is designed to showcase and celebrate a broad spectrum of innovative approaches and ideas in peace-building and conflict resolution, both domestically and abroad.
The conference is being organized by master’s students in the International Peace and Conflict Resolution program, led by Ariel Otruba (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Colleen McQuade (email@example.com).
