About the annual conference: The 2018 conference builds upon prior conferences in 2005 – 2017 in New York, Ohio, and Virginia, which brought together government representatives from among the 50 states and around the globe and their non-governmental organization partners who have legislation or policies in place on topics such as conflict management, human rights, social and emotional learning, peace education, democracy education, civics education, and multi-cultural/global education at the K-12 level and in colleges and universities. Conference and meeting publications from eight of the conferences are available by clicking on the options on the right hand side of the web page.

The International Conference on CRE is an opportunity to engage in interdisciplinary collaboration and research. Presentations will focus on innovations in the fields that are making broad impacts in local, state, national, and international communities.  Participants will exchange best practices, evaluation methodology, creation of policy implementation structures, consideration of obstacles to success, and new and innovative use of training, resources and technology. Conference participants will be drawn from the local, state, national, and international community.  Primary and Secondary educators, H.S. students, college students, college and university faculty, and government and non-governmental organizations are encouraged to attend and present their work to make positive change in their local and global community.
