CAHSS Faculty serves as Visiting Editor of Special Edition of the Journal of Peace-building and Development

Cheryl Duckworth, Ph.D., faculty in the Department of Conflict Resolution Studies (DCRS) in NSU’s College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (CAHSS), was the Visiting Editor of the Special Edition of the Journal of Peace-building and Development published this past April. Duckworth also wrote an editorial titled “Is Peacebuilding Donor-driven? Inside the Dynamics and Impacts of Funding Peace.”

Duckworth is the faculty facilitator for the Peace and Conflict Education Working Group at CAHSS. The group seeks to equip and empower schools worldwide to be examples and builders of peace, and to promote activities and curricula that can help extend peace to the local communities.

In addition to Duckworth, Ismael Muvingi, Ph.D., faculty in DCRS wrote an article for the Special Edition, titled, “Donor-driven Transitional Justice and Peacebuilding.”  Muvingi is the director of the doctoral program in Conflict Analysis and Resolution in DCRS. He is also the faculty facilitator for the African Working Group (AWG) at CAHSS. Since its envisioned conception, the AWG continues as a joint project between faculty, students, and alumni interested in the subject of peace and conflict studies on the African continent.
