    Why Study Conflict Transformation?

    Conflict is omnipresent, emerging from many sources with intrapersonal, interpersonal and systemic antecedents. Responses to conflict can be highly enlightening and valuable for all who are experiencing and managing them. The Conflict Transformation (CT) Program enhances the abilities of individuals and communities of people to recognize diverse needs and develop nonviolent processes for transforming conflicts. Processes studied will include conflict transformation and conflict resolution, forgiveness, reconciliation, and peacebuilding.
