This year, we are calling for proposals from students and alumni in the Columbia University Community. We want to showcase students, alumni and fellows from Columbia and Teachers College. We are looking for presentations that highlight learnings at Columbia, or research or work being done in the field or since graduating.

We are open to different formats and individual or group proposals. We will have two one-hour long sessions with multiple presentations in each. Proposals could be for talks, presentations, workshops, round tables, moderated discussions, or performances. Proposed topic should be related to pillars of negotiation and conflict resolution and/or peacebuilding and sustainability. Format and chosen topics for each session will be decided based on the proposals we receive.


Please note: Only submit proposals for work that you are certain you will be able to confidently present. We will be shaping this event around the proposals we receive, so any last-minute cancellations are highly discouraged.


The SP Forum brings together the CU community to discuss critical and timely issues that affect peace, conflict, and sustainability. It provides a platform for current and future policy makers to share knowledge and practices, and generate new ideas for advancing peace globally.  Now in its 7th year, the forum has featured prominent thoughtleaders including International Peace Institute, Leymah Gbowee, and more, and has focused on topics ranging from complexity science to women’s empowerment, and global policy.
