Working at the Intersection of Peacebuilding, Policy & Education for over 90 Years
Since 1924, the Institute of World Affairs has been working to bring together individuals and communities to better understand and resolve conflict. This includes cutting-edge research on the practice and effectiveness of international peacebuilding as well as on-the-ground initiatives to bring local communities, business leaders, and government representatives together in constructive dialogue.
Professional development programs and web-based learning initiatives designed for diplomats and staff of international organizations help bridge the divide between learning and practice. Roundtable discussions, conferences, and workshops bring together policy experts, community leaders, and decision makers.
