Institute for Social Justice and Conflict Resolution
The Social Justice and Conflict Resolution Institute at LAU was founded in 2015 after the merging of two former institutes: the Institute for Peace and Justice Education and the Institute of Diplomacy and Conflict Transformation. The merger has come to express the principle foundation of the institute that attributes resolutions to contemporary conflicts in the Arab world by the attainment of social justice in public policies.
The institute’s mission is to develop a research-based public policy forum that addresses contemporary issues of social justice and conflict resolution in the Arab World.
- Advance the state of knowledge of conflict resolutions and the attainment of social justice though the production, expansion, and exchange of scientific research in the Arab World.
- Compile and host the Conflict Resolution Database of the Arab World (CRDAW).
- Disseminate scientific findings through public speaking, professional forums, and academic conferences.
- Develop academic programs and curricula in conflict resolution and social justice education.
- Build the capacity of policy leaders, civil society organizations, practitioners, and students in conflict resolutions and social justice advocacy.
