Policy & Practice
The Kroc Institute sees practice and policy as integral components of its mission and vision. Kroc faculty members and graduate students conduct research that addresses real-life problems to reduce violence and enable constructive change at all levels of society, from local communities to national and international institutions. The Institute supports the model of the reflective scholar-practitioner peacebuilder, whose research and practical work in peacebuilding reinforce one another.
Kroc’s research has a significant impact on policy and practice in the fields of peacemaking and peacebuilding around the world. The Institute partners with national and international policymaking bodies like the United Nations, the U.S. administration, governments in conflict zones, and regional organizations to undertake research, training, and other activities that meet their needs.
