What do you love about your work here?

An element I really like about CMU and working here is it's got a practice orientation; people care about what happens in the world. This is really close to my heart, having worked in places like Rwanda and Northern Ireland and indeed here in Winnipeg. There's a lot of people suffering and there's a lot of hurt, so working in the conflict resolution department, one of the things I've always really valued is seeing people's lives change for the better. I think that's something that's not just an intellectual exercise, but it's an applied question of implementation.

Rainbow Butterfly warming hut project honours murdered and missing Indigenous women, girls, and LGBTQ2S individuals

Monday, March 1, 2021 @ 3:49 PM

In the winter of 2018, a group of Conflict Resolution Studies students, including Angela Lavallee (an impacted survivor of gender-based violence) and Sanjam Panag, decided to work on a project that centered on murdered and missing indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit. The project was assigned in a course titled "Nonviolent Social Change," taught by Karen Ridd, Assistant Professor of CRS at Menno Simons College. Their project was set up at the University of Winnipeg as a public event and brought in survivors, family members, Bear Clan Patrol, furthering conversations that would become a springboard for what is now the "Rainbow Butterfly" warming hut project. Four years later, after having hosted events such as the "Reflection on the Red" and through networking with a group of visionaries who go by"Collective of Voices", the warming hut is complete and ready to be unveiled on the Red River trail.

Student Report: Association for Conflict Resolution Annual Conference

Tuesday, October 22, 2019 @ 10:56 AM

By Kluane Buser-Rivet, 4th year CRS student

From September 18–21, 2019, I was one attendee amongst a congregation of mediators at the Association for Conflict Resolution's Annual Conference in Tucson, AZ. For the first time in my life, I was surrounded by hundreds of people who held the job title I have been pursuing for years: mediator. One of my favourite things about this field is how diversity blooms within it. I was surrounded by politicians, business owners, civil servants, and curious students like me from all walks of life.
