Featured Peacebuilding Group: International Committee of the Red Cross

For my Featured Peacebuilding Group this week I’d like to look at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). Founded in 1863 by Henry Dunant, its original focus was treating soldiers after conflict.  It has evolved to having an international mandate to treat all those injured by war and natural disaster, often working with one of its nearly 200 national societies (including the American Red Cross).   The ICRC is based in Geneva.

I am conflict resolution educator, peacebuilding trainer and career coach. My professional experience has spanned the legal, think tank, international, quasi-government, and higher and secondary education sectors. I have taught at all higher education levels: community college, 4-year undergraduate (private, public, religious), graduate, and international. In 2003-2004 I was a U.S. Fulbright Scholar teaching at the University of Tartu in Estonia. From 2005 -2012 I was a senior program officer and senior manager at the U.S. Institute of Peace in Washington where I managed programs for colleges and universities and developed training for faculty and students. I work with all groups and educational institutions to support peacebuilding awareness.
