About Us @ Toward Reconciliation

Toward Reconciliation

Toward Reconciliation is Columbia University’s Undergraduate International Affairs and Conflict Resolution Society.  As a student-conceived program, we seek to gather and develop young people's ideas for dealing with global issues and alleviating tensions in areas of strife. The program is comprised of several segments, including student research, the publication of conflict resolution proposals, and symposium conferences on global and economic political development.

We challenge students to think beyond traditional biases, stereotypes, and constructs in formulating their concepts to lessen the conflict. Toward Reconciliation's acclaimed speaker series is open to the entire Columbia University Community, where we will hold dialogue panels and invite prominent speakers to expose students to a wider variety of political, social, and cultural perspectives on a divided region.

By bringing people with conflicting views together to speak earnestly in a new forum, the program seeks to replace rhetoric with educated discussion and education, which are to be considered ends unto themselves.

The goal of Toward Reconciliation is not to solve the world's problems or impose political ideologies, but rather to provide a venue for fresh ideas. By focusing on humanity's commonality, the program hopes to unleash a torrent of innovative thinking aimed at bettering humanity's collective plight.
