The CICR contributes to the resolution of international deadly conflict through research, education and practice. The center 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, and responds directly to the expressed needs of parties involved in ongoing conflicts, empowering individuals and organizations to address conflict constructively. The CICR coordinates efforts of academics and practitioners from governmental, nongovernmental and international organizations in joint research and action. Located within the Institute of War and Peace Studies at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs, the CICR routinely participates in partnerships inside and outside the University.


CICR’s efforts focus on participatory processes that increase social capital and engagement in long-term peace processes. We encourage the movement towards “positive,” sustainable peace and seek to generate creative opportunities to help strengthen this process. We foster inclusiveness and creative human development.
