About the event

We are pleased to extend an invitation to you for a significant and timely event: "Russia and Ukraine War: PEACE AND RECONCILIATION," a part of our renowned Visions in Conflict series and programming. 

About Visions in Conflict: 

Visions in Conflict is an initiative born out of the need for constructive dialogue and conflict resolution in a world facing numerous international and national crises. 

It was first sparked in 2006 during the American Psychological Association (APA) annual conference, where Dr. Michael D'Andrea explored the nonviolent philosophy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as a means to resolve conflicts. Since then, Visions in Conflict has organized symposia and conferences, bringing together experts from diverse fields, including counselors, psychologists, mediators, attorneys, theologians, and more, to address conflicts comprehensively.

About "Russia and Ukraine War: 


In light of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict, we believe it is crucial to create a platform for meaningful dialogue, understanding, and, most importantly, a path toward peaceful resolution. This program will consist of a series of 25-50 hours of audio and video presentations, each pre-recorded and aired over 3 days online on X (formerly known as Twitter).

Program Highlights: 

Our program will address five key discussion areas aimed at facilitating peace and reconciliation:

Understanding the Conflict: We aim to provide a comprehensive history of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, including the relevant players such as the United States and NATO. 

We will explore critical topics encompassing geography, politics, economics, history, culture, and religion.

Impact on Citizens: We will delve into the human aspect of the conflict, specifically focusing on how it has affected the lives of children, women, families, and men on both sides. By identifying similarities and differences, we aim to foster empathy and understanding.

Diplomacy and Mediation: We will discuss the role of diplomacy and mediation, drawing lessons from historical and contemporary examples, with the goal of exploring strategies for effective negotiation and resolution.

Grassroots Reconciliation: We will examine grassroots initiatives and community-led efforts aimed at healing and unity. These initiatives play a vital role in long-term stability.

Learning from History: We will analyze successfully resolved conflicts in history and explore how those lessons can be applied to the Russia-Ukraine situation.

Charting a Course Toward Resolution: 

Our ultimate objective is to chart a course towards resolution, peace, and reconciliation between Russia and Ukraine, their governments, people, allies, and the international community.

We believe that by fostering dialogue and understanding in these key areas, we can contribute to a more peaceful future in the region.

Join Us in Making a Difference: 

We invite you to participate in this important discussion and share your expertise. Your insights would greatly enrich our program and contribute to meaningful dialogue. Together, we can work towards a peaceful solution to this complex and volatile conflict.

Please let us know of your interest and availability at your earliest convenience. We look forward to your positive response and the opportunity to collaborate on this crucial initiative.
