ACR-GNY & CUNY Dispute Resolution Center at John Jay College present

Keys to Peacebuilding in the Circle Process

Key characteristics of Circle Process strengthen the possibility of effective dialog for peacebuilding that is rooted in a social justice vision. This session will discuss the necessary characteristics of peacebuilding efforts and the ways that Circle Process fulfills those needs.

Kay Pranis

Kay Pranis teaches and writes about the dialog process known as "Peacemaking Circles." From 1994 – 2003 Kay held the position of Restorative Justice Planner at the MN Dept of Corrections. Since that initial exposure to the use of Peacemaking Circles in the criminal legal system, Kay has been involved in developing the use of Peacemaking Circles in schools, social services, victim support, churches, families, neighborhoods, museums, universities, municipal planning and workplaces. Since 2003 Kay has been an independent trainer sharing the peacemaking circle process.

Kay has authored or co-authored several books about Circles: Peacemaking Circles - From Conflict to Community; The Little Book of Circle Processes – A New/Old Approach to Peacemaking; Doing Democracy with Circles – Engaging Communities in Public Planning; Heart of Hope – A Guide for Using Peacemaking Circles to Develop Emotional Literacy, Promote Healing & Build Healthy Relationships and Circle Forward – Building a Restorative School Community.
