Kroc Institute | January 6, 2020

New resources published by Kroc Institute Scholar in Residence Josefina Echavarría Alvarez provide tools to equip scholar-practitioners and academics to teach courses in peace studies, conflict transformation, and peacebuilding. Echavarría is co-director of the Research Centre for Peace and Conflict at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. 

Scholars in Residence and Visiting Research Fellows spend a semester to a full academic year conducting research on the University of Notre Dame campus. Scholars in Residence are invited by a core member of the Kroc Institute faculty, and have the chance to engage with members of the Institute’s academic community. 

In each of the publications produced while at the Kroc Institute, Echavarría draws on the theory of elicitive conflict transformation, a school of thought that emphasizes the role of local groups, individuals, or conflict parties as the most important resources for moving away from violence and resolving conflicts.
