How realistic is it to think that the U.S. will be able to communicate well with both Israel and other nations in the Middle East? What is our role in these conflicts?

Peace Studies

War and Nonviolent Protest

  • U.S. Institute of Peace,, offers information on grants, research, and publications related to international peace.
  • The Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation,, offers publications, courses, and workshops in studying the causes of international conflict and options for international cooperation.
