In today’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (ICAR) brown bag lecture, Linda Johnston and four teams of applied practice and theory students from the institute present “A Year of APT: Working in the Field.” Johnston is the field program coordinator for the teams.

Each of the four teams examined a different activity involving conflict resolution intervention and skills training. The first team researched the National Mediation Board, the second group worked on a restorative justice project with the Fairfax Public Schools, the third did a dialogue project in the Fairfax County libraries, and the last team worked in the Ukraine.

Johnston earned her Ph.D. at ICAR and returned to George Mason after serving as an assistant professor at Antioch University in Ohio. She is also director of the scholarship program for the International Peace Research Association.

The discussion is part of ICAR’s series of informal lectures on research and practice of conflict resolution, and is held at noon in the ICAR Main Conference Room, A401, located at 4260 Chain Bridge Road in Fairfax.
