The Program on Peace and Development based in the Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale University aims to join academics and practitioners to address issues related to ongoing conflicts or post-conflict politics. 

The mission of the Program is to function as a platform for discourse, stressing the involvement of a wide range of actors and thinkers. The Program gathers participants - from community leaders and activists to major political leaders to academics - in the same arena to ask crucial questions to help foster more open communication.
