This coming summer the inaugural On the New Frontiers in Peacebuilding symposium will be held at American University in Washington, DC. It will be held July 14-August 4, 2018.
The 2018 DC Symposium will expose its participants to the fundamental concepts and practices of conflict management, while linking them to the newest approaches to peace and peacebuilding. Students will go deeply into practical concepts and programming priorities in the following areas:
- Conflict Prevention: Deliver a thorough understanding of preventative diplomacy and its implementation, the role of multilateral institutions, prevention as more effective option for conflict management despite its lack of recognition.
- Conflict Resolution: Train on crucial practical skills and concepts such as mediation, facilitation, and negotiation.
- Reconciliation: Identify the limitations of reconciliation in post-conflict contexts and generate reflections on how to overcome such challenges.
- New Frontiers topics: Conflict cuisine, neuroscience and reconciliation, the role of business in peacebuilding, and many others!
