NECR September Webinar: Dr. Peter Dixon, Conflict Resolution & Coexistence

Join the NECR program for our first webinar of the 2023 -2024 Academic Year! We are thrilled to welcome and introduce you to Dr. Peter Dixon, NECR's new full-time faculty member.

Dr. Dixon has a Ph.D. in sociology from the University of California, Berkeley, and is a leading researcher in human rights, law, political science, and peace studies. His research centers on the interconnected streams of peace, conflict and the everyday, measures of justice, and peaceful diversity. Prior to his work as an academic research scientist, Dr. Dixon served as an evaluation specialist at the United Nations and the International Criminal Court. His upcoming book, Measures of Justice: Building Community in Conflict, focuses on the impact of legal institutions on society in times of tension—and the role of community in building peace. Before joining the School of Professional Studies, Dr. Dixon taught in and served on the Program Committee for the Conflict Resolution and Coexistence master’s program at Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management. “I approach teaching as a craft that is built equally on the expertise I bring to each subject and the learning environment I establish inside and outside the classroom,” Dr. Dixon says. “My ultimate goals are to ignite students’ curiosity and give them the tools to critically engage with the world’s social problems.”

Following an overview of his work and research, the audience will have the opportunity to ask Dr. Dixon questions.
