Opportunity to Share Interesting Research at the ACR Conference

Thanks to Fiona Hollier, an opportunity just came to my attention. The US based Association for Conflict Resolution (ACR) is calling for emerging researchers to submit proposals to present at their conference in October in Baltimore. The selection criteria aim to support the dissemination of interesting research that might not otherwise come to the attention of their members.

The presentation serves three primary functions: 1) to inform our membership about a topic in which they might not have engaged and/or excite them about new possibilities in the field; 2) to inspire our membership with the high quality of work being done by those preparing to enter or newly practicing in the field; 3) to give an opportunity to a number of our newest professionals to demonstrate the contribution being made by the “New Voices” in the field.

Further details are available at http://www.imis100us2.com/ACR/ACR/Education___Training/Conflict_Resolution_Training.aspx

Additional opportunity

The conference presentation will also be videoed and featured on the ACR website.  Additionally, a select number of submissions that were not selected for presentation at the conference will be invited to submit a video for the website.

Who is eligible to apply

All current or recent students in programs specializing in conflict resolution or interdisciplinary programs in which conflict studies are an integral part may apply.  Practitioners who may not have been students in certificate or degree programs but have done other forms of training and have entered the field in the last five years are also invited to apply.

If you are doing some research in an innovative space or from a unique angle, consider applying for this fantastic opportunity to disseminate your work on the international stage.

  1. This sounds like a great opportunity Olivia – thanks very much for sharing. I’d love to submit but October is out for me for international travel. Hopefully others in the Network will be able to make it!
