The institute for Social Justice and Conflict Resolution (ISJCR) at the Lebanese American University (LAU) in collaboration with the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) and King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz International Centre for Interreligious and Intercultural Dialogue (KAICIID) are organizing a two-day peer-reviewed conference at the Lebanese American University - Beirut to address conflict mitigation, dialogue, and reconciliation strategies in Syria. The conference aims to map comparative models in identity-conflict societies with a particular attention given to power sharing arrangements, local initiatives, and the role of non-state actors and religious leadership. Innovative approaches to conflict mitigation and peace-building through dialogue, deliberation, education, mediation, reparations, and transitional justice within the Syrian context are of primary interest.
