Transformative Mediation and The Conflict Resolution Center

The fascinating exchange between David River and Rawle Andrews Jr. will continue shortly. In the meantime, I’ll start posts concerning transformative mediation, another “flavor” of mediation. The Conflict Resolution Center (CRC) is the Administrative Office for the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation (ISCT). Kristine Paranica, J.D., Director of the Conflict Resolution Center, serves as Administrative Director and Fellow of the ISCT. Kristine will also be a Guest Blogger, and will be interviewed in Engaging Conflicts Today this fall.

This is from the CRC’s website:
ABOUT THE CONFLICT RESOLUTION CENTER

Conflict Resolution Center homeNorth Dakota , the Peace Garden State, is home to a unique organization whose staff and volunteers offer support and training for those people committed to fostering understanding and peace. The Conflict Resolution Center, located on the campus of the University of North Dakota, is a non-profit community mediation and training organization. The CRC was established in 1988 by a group of UND faculty and staff in order to provide mediation services to the UND campus community. Since its inception, it has expanded its services to meet the growing conflict management needs of its clientele. It now also offers conflict management training/education, mediation training, and facilitation. The CRC is the only community mediation and training center in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. Its mission statement: To transform the fundamental human experience of conflict by fostering greater understanding and peace.

The CRC is the Administrative Office for the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation (www.transformativemediation.org ). The ISCT is a national think-tank supported by a consortium of universities including the University of North Dakota, Hofstra Law School, Temple University, and James Madison University. Kristine Paranica, Director, serves as Administrative Director and Fellow; member James Antes, Ph.D., serves as Fellow; and member Daniel Bjerknes serves as an Associate of the Institute. The Institute provides the premier resources for the theory and practice of Transformative Mediation in the world.
