Conflict Resolution Education and Training
Non-Partisan Public Dialogue
We are committed to remaining politically non-partisan. However, we are not "neutral":
- We are committed to generally accepted principles of international law and international human rights.
- We are committed to the use of peaceful, nonviolent methods of conflict management or social change.
We design and convene public education events to facilitate constructive citizen participation in Canadian public life and international issues, and acquainting interested persons with Canada's international treaty commitments. Events initiated and organized by Catherine Morris have included:
- Education and training in negotiation, conflict resolution, conflict analysis and reconciliation.
- Responding in Iraq: Mobilizing our Community for Humanitarian Action, April 16, 2003, co-sponsored by Peacemakers Trust and several faculties and research centres at the University of Victoria and Royal Roads University. This event gathered together academics, practitioners and politicians from several political parties with community leaders and the public in Victoria for an information workshop to discuss the complexities of humanitarian action in the Iraq crisis. See also the resources being compiled by Catherine Morris for Peacemakers Trust on peacebuilding in Iraq, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, and Cambodia.
- A Force More Powerful, a film and discussion series co-sponsored by the University of Victoria Institute for Dispute Resolution and the Centre for Global Studies, February 11-March 25, 2003.
