Arthur Romano is an Assistant Professor at the School for Conflict Resolution and Analysis at the George Mason University Korea Campus. He is a scholar-practitioner whose research and applied interests include global educational movements, the use of transformative and experiential education in communities affected by violence and nonviolence education. Professor Romano is currently teaching courses on identity and conflict resolution, peace education and group, community and organization conflict analysis and resolution. Arthur’s PhD research utilized complexity theory to examine pedagogical innovation in the field of international peace education.
Arthur has designed and implemented experiential educational programs in Asia, Africa, and Central America on peace and conflict resolution related themes. He co-developed the Diversity Matters Now workshop series, which explores issues related to identity and peace-building in colleges and universities across the US.
Arthur is also committed to the ‘co-production of knowledge’ and has worked with various community actors to generate and disseminate information about conflict resolution and peace education. In 2011, he wrote Education for Peace: A Resource Guide for Educators and the Community, and in 2005, he worked with a coalition of community groups to produce Teaching Peace in Scotland. Both publications were generated in dialogue with community educators and were offered free of charge through a coalition of allied organizations.
