Carter School Peace Week

A New Tradition

In Fall 2020, the Carter school launched a new tradition to bring together the Carter School community and the broader public in dialogue about peace, conflict resolution, and justice.  This inaugural event was birthed out of the recognition of the International Day of Peace, which is recognized every year on September 21st.  The Carter School decided to take that recognition a little further with week-long activities and events in the Spring and Fall.

The Carter School Spring 2022 Peace Week focused on the theme of Ideas and Action: Integrating Theory and Practice for Peace and Conflict Resolution

From Monday, April 4, through Friday, April 8, the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution at George Mason University hosted a daily series of roundtables, webinars, workshops, and book talks with Carter School dean Alpaslan Özerdem to bring together the Carter School community and the broader public in dialogue about peace, conflict resolution, and justice.
