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 2023 Peace Week focused on the theme of What Works? Building Peace at Home and in the World in Challenging Times. 

Spring 2023 Peace Week was held March 27th through March 31st. We addressed the rise of conflicts, fragility, and crises on both global and domestic level that increases complexity of peacebuilding and uncertainty about its effectiveness. Sessions concentrated on discussing effective, sustainable solutions to these challenges. Seminars, workshops and interactive sessions presented strategies, practices, and innovations in the field of peacebuilding and discuss new developments within peacebuilding architectures.
