The 2015 Summer Peacebuilding Program has begun! CCS is happy to welcome 17 participants to the beautiful MIIS campus for a 3-week intensive course on bridging the theory and practice of building peace in societies emerging from conflict. The program launched on Sunday night with a reception to welcome the students and introduce the faculty. It will continue in the coming days with sessions by Dr. Iyer, MIIS faculty, practitioners, and visiting academics, including influential voices in the field of conflict studies such as Dr. Christopher Mitchell. Participants will also visit local organizations and projects including Rancho Cielo and Oakland Ceasefire.
Follow the reflections and experiences of the program participants on the SPP blog.
