Center for International Conflict Resolution
Columbia University

Improving the Practice of International Conflict Resolution

The Center for International Conflict Resolution (CICR) at Columbia University contributes to the resolution of international deadly conflict by bridging the gap between policymakers, practitioners, and academia. Tumultuous times call for creative engagement. CICR at Columbia drives critical debates in conflict resolution, with thematic focuses on the mediation of deadly conflict, the economics of peacebuilding, and the architecture of global peace and security efforts.

Jean-Marie Guehenno, formerly director of the Center for International Conflict Resolution (CICR), recently left SIPA to assume the position of president and CEO of the International Crisis Group.  In the absence of a director, CICR is not undertaking new programming.  CICR previously collaborated closely with the SIPA Specialization on International Conflict Resolution (ICR) and the Arnold Saltzman Institute on War and Peace Studies.  The ICR Specialization and Saltzman Institute will continue to present events similarly co-sponsored with CICR.  To find events related to conflict resolution, peacebuilding and diplomacy please visit the International Conflict Resolution specialization page or the Saltzman Institute for War and Peace Studies.
