ACR-GNY's 23rd Annual Conference

Expand: The Field × The Future

The field of conflict resolution evolves and attends to the paradox of a simultaneously interdependent and divided world. Multidimensional understandings of what is and can constitute conflict resolution practices emerge from this complexity. New strategies build upon established frameworks, and fresh perspectives inform deep-rooted wisdom. Expand: The Field × The Future, ACR-GNY’s 23rd Annual Conference, seeks to broadly consider the growing field of conflict resolution today and the myriad forms it may take to address future challenges. We invite practitioners and academics (including students) to share their discoveries, speculations, provocations, and questions about the expanding practices of conflict resolution.



ACR-GNY is proud to honor Tanenbaum at our 2024 Annual Conference.

Tanenbaum promotes justice and builds respect for religious difference by transforming individuals and institutions to reduce prejudice, hatred, and violence.

As a secular and non-sectarian non-profit, Tanenbaum works to promote religious peacebuilders who help counter extremism and violence in armed conflicts, and tackles religious bullying of students, harassment in workplaces, and disparate health treatment for people based on their beliefs.
