The New England Association for Conflict Resolution (NEACR) and Bay Path University
present: REPAIRING OUR NATION’S DIVIDES: INSIGHTS FROM TWO VENTURES IN IMMERSIVE DIALOGUE
Featuring remarks from Dr. Paula Green, Founder and Senior Advisor, Karuna Center for Peacebuilding. This Spring’s meeting will feature remarks and a conversation
with Dr. Paula Green, Professor Emerita at the School for International Training in the US, and Founder and Senior Advisor, Karuna Center for Peacebuilding. In October 2018, Dr. Green received the first ever Alliance for Peacebuilding award dedicated to US
peacebuilding, recognizing her work in Leverett, MA with Hands Across the Hills.
Following the 2016 presidential election, Dr. Green turned her focus from international work to addressing political divides in the US. Engaging communities antagonistic to each other because of their political allegiances, she and other residents of her hometown of Leverett, MA, co-created Hands Across the Hills. Modeled on her international work, this 2017-2018 project featured extended dialogues and
cultural exchanges between groups from MA and KY.
The program is being co-sponsored by the Leadership and Negotiation program at Bay Path University, which is directed by Joshua N. Weiss, PhD
