For nearly forty years, George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution has been a leading figure in the field of peace and conflict studies. On July 1, 2020, it will start the next chapter in its leadership with the adoption of a new name: the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter School for Peace and Conflict Resolution.

The name was approved on February 27, 2020, by George Mason University’s Board of Visitors. In September 2020, the School will host an event to commemorate this next step in its evolution.

The new name will serve as a tribute to the Carters’ steadfast commitment to the peaceful resolution of conflict worldwide, a transition made timely as the world faces both entrenched and emerging global threats and human security challenges.
