The Peacebuilding Initiative hosts guest speakers throughout the year and organizes an annual colloquium.

The spring 2024 colloquium, “Building Peace Across Generations,” included peace and conflict experts from the University for Peace, Queen’s University Belfast, University of Bristol, Columbia University, and Yale; practitioners and policy-makers from the United Nations, Mercy Corps, the International Association for Human Values, and the International Rescue Committee; and peacebuilding trainers and community organizers from Europe, Rwanda, and New Haven.


Participants at the 2024 colloquium included researchers, scholars, practitioners and students working at the forefront of peacebuilding, human rights, and global health.
