Center for International Conflict Resolution
The Center for International Conflict Resolution (CICR) at Columbia University contributed to the resolution of international deadly conflict through research, education and practice. CICR strives to increase understanding of international conflicts through innovative, collaborative research and is committed to offering courses that disseminate knowledge about conflicts and their causes.
CICR responds directly to the expressed needs of parties involved in ongoing conflicts, empowering individuals and organizations to address conflicts constructively. CICR's research, education, and practice, inform one another creating a unique synergy that enriches each element of the Center's work. CICR also coordinates efforts of academics and practitioners from governmental, non-governmental, and international organizations in joint research and action.
Located within the Arnold A. Saltzman Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University, CICR routinely participates in partnerships inside and outside the university. Founded in 1997, the Center took its present name in January 2002. Former U.S. Senator George Mitchell joined as a Senior Fellow in July 2002.
The Center came under the leadership of Dr. Aldo Civico in June 2007; Dr. Civico has continued to deepen the work of CICR in Colombia, Iraq, and East Timor, while also expanding the conflict transformation and peacebuilding activities to other regions touched by deadly violence.
