Reflecting on the Kroc Institute‘s Response to 9/11 Twenty Years Later
It’s hard to believe that the 20th anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001, took place nearly 20 years ago. As they did for so many people and organizations around the world, the events of that day had a profound impact on the Kroc Institute and how it thought about its role as a global hub for peace studies. In this episode, Erin Corcoran sits down with George Lopez, Rashied Omar, and Gerard Powers to discuss the ways the Kroc Institute responded to 9/11 and the ways the events of that day indelibly changed the Institute.

The latest issue of Peace Policy offers perspectives toward that end with essays by Alistair Millar and David Cortright on guidelines for more effective multilateral cooperation against global terrorism, by Lisa Schirch on peacebuilding principles for preventing violent extremism, and by Naureen Chowdhury Fink on the benefits and challenges of incorporating gender perspectives.
