In April 2019, the Kroc School’s Institute for Peace and Justice (Kroc IPJ) announced the Impact:Peace Initiative, a new program which seeks to decrease violent conflict by leveraging evidence to accelerate the most important change processes in the peacebuilding field. Impact:Peace held a successful launch convening in May, which brought together world-class experts to provide answers to questions like: What are the current policy and advocacy processes that have the potential to reduce violence worldwide? What evidence do policymakers, practitioners, advocates and other influencers need most to drive those processes forward?

Rachel Locke, the newly appointed Director of the Impact:Peace Initiative, joined the launch event, and then sat down with us to share more about her background and her plans to lead this important program.
