About Us: The Academy for International Conflict Management and Peacebuilding is the education and training arm of the United States Institute of Peace. Begun in 2009, the Academy now encompasses and builds upon both the domestic and international programs that the Institute has provided for over two decades.
Among other activities, the Academy offers a full curriculum of practitioner-oriented courses at the Institute's headquarters in Washington and elsewhere; conducts conflict management workshops and training in Afghanistan, Sudan, Pakistan, Colombia, Iraq, Rwanda, and other conflict zones; and makes many of its courses and other resources available online to professionals, teachers, and students around the world. By combining its domestic education programs, its practitioner courses, and its overseas work in zones of conflict, the Academy has emerged as a truly global conflict management training and education center.
Participants in the Academy's offerings come from diverse backgrounds: U.S. civilian and military agencies, international organizations, the nonprofit sector, schools and universities, and civil society groups and officials in conflict zones, among others.
