Sustaining Peace: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on November 7th!
The Earth Institute's Advanced Consortium on Cooperation, Conflict and Complexity (AC4) is hosting “Sustaining Peace: Interdisciplinary Perspectives” in collaboration with the Masters Program on Negotiation and Conflict Resolution and the International Center for Cooperation and Conflict Resolution on November 7th 2012 at Teachers College.
“Sustaining Peace: Interdisciplinary Perspectives” will address the emerging field of sustainable peace by identifying and sharing scholarship, educational tools, and practical applications around the belief that preventing war and sustaining peace are related but not one in the same. Rather; peace can and should be studied as distinct from war, grounded in a mixed methodological, interdisciplinary and intercultural framework. The event will address the current and future direction of the field and showcase the cutting edge work in conflict resolution, violence prevention, peace and sustainability at Columbia University including:
· Morton Deutsch and Peter T. Coleman present their most recent book: The Psychological Components of Sustainable Peace - along with a panel of experts from the field
· Keynote by Peter T. Coleman: Suppose We Took Peace Seriously
· Information tables of related centers and programs at Columbia
· Poster session highlighting the latest research from AC4 fellows and projects
· Workshops: Nine 50-minute sessions covering topics such as:
- Dynamic Systems Conflict Mapping
- Coordinated Management of Meaning (CMM) and Sustainable Peace
