Click here for Program Overview Document


The Prevention, Relief & Recovery (PR&R) program is a practitioner-oriented teaching and engagement institute that conducts programs for peacebuilding, humanitarian, and conflict management professionals around the globe.

PR&R programs are usually designed for mixed groups of practitioners from the various communities involved in these complex activities.  A significant number of participants come from governments and armed forces of partner nations, and are funded by US Government Security Assistance/Cooperation funds.  



PR&R’s core strength is in the design and delivery of engaging cross-community workshops in the wide domain of conflict prevention/management, disaster preparedness/relief, and conflict recovery.  These topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Humanitarian Assistance, Disaster Preparedness, & Relief Activities
  • Conflict Prevention, Conflict Management, Ethnic Conflict, & Religious-based Violence
  • Governance and Institution Capacity Building, Including Defense Governance
  • Cross-Cultural Understanding (societies, religions, organizations)
  • Conflict Recovery (Refugees/Internally Displaced Persons, Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration, Child Soldiers, Etc.)
  • Economic Recovery & Livelihood Promotion
