The Nipissing District Branch of the Canadian International Council (CIC) is hosting our last event of the season:
Evan Hoffman, PhD is a Senior Associate at the Canadian International Institute of Applied Negotiation (CIIAN) and the Program Leader of the newly-created Institute of Applied Conflict Management (IACM) at Nipissing University.

Dr. Hoffman has published numerous articles on the themes of conflict prevention and resolution, peacebuilding and mediation. He has provided consulting services to Global Affairs Canada (GAC), the Carter Center, the UN, the EU, the Ottawa Police Service, St. Lawrence College (Cornwall), the Vietnamese Ministry of Justice and others on these topics. Over the last ten years, he’s conducted workshops and trainings with hundreds of community leaders, university students, police officers, and government officials from around the world.

Dr. Hoffman says, "We seem to be living in a very troubled world filled with violence, conflict and strife."
In this talk Dr. Hoffman will explore the role of conflict resolution in preventing violence and creating peace in a variety of domestic and international contexts. He will argue that conflict resolution has the potential to transform destructive conflicts but that we need to find better ways to unleash that potential.
