Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies
Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies The University of Notre Dames Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies is one of the worlds leading centers for the study of the causes of violent conflict and strategies for sustainable peace. Kroc Institute faculty and fellows conduct interdisciplinary research on a wide range of topics related to peace and justice. In particular, the study of religion in conflict and peacebuilding has been a major focus of Kroc Institute research since 2000, when Kroc Institute director Scott Appleby invited the first of 16 scholars of religion and peacebuilding to become visiting fellows at the Kroc Institute. Many of these year-long fellowships, which resulted in a substantial body of work, were funded by grants from the Rockefeller Foundation. Today, about a third of the Kroc Institute’s core faculty members focus most of their research and writing on religion, conflict, and peacebuilding. The work has evolved into 3 distinct strands: Contending Modernities, which examines the interaction of religion and secular actors in the modern world; Religion & Reconciliation, which explores the concept of reconciliation as a means to help people and societies emerge from civil war, genocide, and dictatorship; and Theology & Practice of Just Peace, a complement to the theology and ethics of just war.
