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.

Spring 2022 Peace Week will be held April 4-8

Each semester, the Carter School Peace Week brings together faculty, students, alumni, staff as well as our friends and partners from across the peace and conflict resolution community for a week-long conversation on some of the most critical topics for our field.  From panel discussions to interactive workshops, special guest speakers, book launches, dialogues, film screenings, and more, these discussions help to advance our field to more effectively address urgent issues of peace and justice.

Our next Spring Peace Week will be held April 4 - 8, 2022. Join us for a series of workshops, presentations, and discussions focused on Ideas and Action: Integrating Theory and Practice for Peace and Conflict Resolution. The Carter School highlights innovative work in theory and practice of peace and conflict resolution in a week of cross-fertilizing amongst diverse practitioners, researchers, and teachers. This collaborative space will be devoted to the multitude of efforts to prevent and transform the most destructive impacts of conflicts, support justice, and build peace. Events will be held in-person, online, or hybrid formats.
