Arcadia University’s International Peace and Conflict Studies (IPCR) master’s program presents a public forum and workshop, “Alternatives to Violence: Building Community Through Transforming Power from Armenia to Zimbabwe,”on Monday, Feb. 18, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. in Grey Towers Castle Mirror and Rose Rooms. Register online.

“Alternatives to Violence: Building Community Through Transforming Power from Armenia to Zimbabwe” is the first in a series of free public forums to be held at Arcadia thanks to funding from the Public Education for Peacebuilding  Support Initiative of the United States Institute of Peace (USIP). It will be facilitated by Dr. John Noakes, Associate Provost for Faculty Advancement and Student Learning; Dr. Amy Cox, Administrative Director of IPCR; and Dr. Bill Jacobsen, Adjunct Professor of IPCR.

Alternatives to Violence workshops use the shared experience of participants, interactive exercises, games and role-plays to examine the ways in which we respond to situations where injustice, prejudice and anger can lead to aggressive behavior and violence.
