Conflict and Peace Initiative

The Conflict and Peace Initiative (CPI) was launched in the fall of 2016 with the mission of advancing a deeper understanding of the root causes, dynamics, and consequences of conflict and peace. CPI received support from the International Institute’s Enterprise Fund and the University of Michigan. Events and projects drew on collaborative partnerships across disciplines and ongoing engagement with anti-violence and anti-discrimination advocacy groups. CPI supported global advocacy organizations by raising awareness of local social justice programs and hosting internationally relevant events featuring those pursuing a just and positive peace.

This initiative is no longer active. Please contact CPI co-directors Christian Davenport ( or Michelle Bellino ( with any questions.
