As a Canadian organization, we build on our unique international role as well as our deeply rooted values of impartiality, inclusion and tolerance to foster constructive dialogue around the world.
By taking our research into practical dialogue settings, we gain insights from the conflict dynamics themselves and apply these new understandings back to our research, challenging assumptions in the field and generating innovative ideas.
We design dialogue-based processes that respond to the expressed needs of our participants so that they can develop sustainable solutions that are truly their own.
As an independent, university-based organization, we design and run quiet processes that give all parties unimpeded space to explore new and difficult terrain, without favoring a particular side or outcome.
