Mission & Vision

AC4-Logo-2014(vertical)AC4 strives to foster sustainable peace through innovation and integration.

We work to enable and support integrative research and practice on sustainable peace, constructive conflict engagement, and sustainable development. This is built on an understanding that building peaceful and sustainable societies requires a systemic approach, leveraging the expertise and knowledge of scientists and practitioners from across disciplines and areas of practice. By connecting thought leaders at Columbia University and around the world, AC4 works to build opportunities to apply leading-edge science to generate solutions for some of our most pressing social and environmental challenges.
