Institute for Environmental Diplomacy and Security

This Signature Award will establish an institute dedicated to both the study and practice of techniques that can assist in resolving environmental conflicts, and in using ecological processes as a peace-building tool.

Such praxis of action-oriented research is increasingly important for policy-makers and community decision-makers. The Institute for Environmental Diplomacy and Security will operate within a framework of 3 broad themes that capture its mission and vision: Borderlands, Resource Values, and Pragmatic Peace.

For more information about the Institute, visit www.uvm.edu/ieds. Saleem H. Ali, Professor of Environmental Studies in the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources, will serve as the founding director.
