Mission

AC4’s mission is to support, share and connect theory, research and practice at Columbia University and beyond related to conflict resolution, violence prevention, sustainable development, and peace.  We work collaboratively across disciplines, using multiple cultural lenses and methodologies to actively engage in complex global issues. Through the support of faculty and students at Columbia University, and in collaboration with centers and institutes from Columbia University and others across the globe, AC4 works to generate cutting-edge ideas, practices and technologies to foster constructive conflict resolution, violence prevention, sustainable development, and peace.
