Conflict Resolution Day is an international day set aside to promote and honor the work of conflict resolution. This year, USIP and the Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR)—the largest association of conflict resolution practitioners in the U.S.—will jointly sponsor an event focusing on international conflict resolution and peacemaking and on examining the current challenges in the field. Opportunities for careers in international conflict resolution will also be discussed.
Please join us for this provocative and informative discussion on the dynamics and opportunities in the field of international peace and conflict resolution.
