This spring the Kroc School helped to train 45 new peacebuilders in Culiacán, Sinaloa, epicenter of the violent conflict raging in Mexico since 2007. The fifth version of our certificate program in peacebuilding emphasized the active accompaniment of victims of violence and included a wide range of activists, academics, businesspeople, lawyers, clinicians, and government officials. Led by Professor of Practice and Trans-Border Institute Director Ev Meade, six Kroc School graduate students traveled back and forth to Sinaloa throughout the spring semester to participate in the program, and conduct applied research in collaboration with our local partners.
