    Restorative Justice: Rooted in Relationships

    Conflict occurs every day, all over the world, and it is important to have the skills necessary to resolve problems. The concept of the Conflict Management Certificate Program (CMCP) at Conrad Grebel University College sprang from a Peace and Conflict Department strategic visioning session that occurred in the late nineties. In May 1999, this program was officially launched with a selection of workshops offered by Grebel and a partnership with Rick Russel, Dr. Barbara Landau, and Sy Landau.
