The Ohio State University (OSU) and the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC) are partnering with schools, colleges, universities, and governmental and non- governmental organizations around the globe to host the International Conference on Conflict Resolution Education (CRE) June 8 – 13, 2016. The 2016 conference builds upon prior conferences between 2004 - 2013 in Ohio, and 2014 - 2015 in Virginia, which brought together government representatives from among the 50 states and around the globe and their non-governmental organization partners. The annual audience includes college/university educators and students, K-12 educators, prevention specialists, and state, local, national and international policy makers. The International Conference on CRE is an opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration and research. Presentations will focus on innovations in the fields that are making broad impacts in local, state, national, and international communities. Participants exchange best practices, evaluation methodology, creation of policy implementation structures, consideration of obstacles to success, and new and innovative use of training, resources and technology. Conference participants are drawn from the local, national and international community.
