Carter School Peace Week

Our 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.

Fall 2024 Peace Week

Fall 2024 Peace Week will be held September 23rd through September 27th. The Carter School Fall 2024 Peace Week titled Horizons of Innovation and Entrepreneurship for Peace.

The field of peacebuilding is increasingly integrating effective strategies, practices, and technological innovations that have significant social and economic impacts on conflict and post-conflict societies. Practitioners and academics are constantly developing and applying technological interventions to disrupt the dynamics of conflict and violence, thereby promoting the well-being of communities worldwide. Peace Week will focus on exploring the frontiers of innovation and pioneering solutions for conflict prevention and transformation. Through seminars, workshops, and interactive sessions, participants will engage with strategies, practices, and policies to enhance innovation and entrepreneurship in peacebuilding efforts.
