As envisioned by peacebuilders for many years and as embodied in the U.S. Department of Peacebuilding legislation, we are on the verge of actualizing a “civilian Camp David” – a full residential Peacebuilding Center where communities go when something like Ferguson occurs and where there are peacebuilders ready, willing and able to work comprehensively to facilitate resolution and next steps.

Dot Maver is an educator and peacebuilder whose keynote is inspiring cooperation on behalf of the common good and whose involvement in peacebuilding has linked personal, community and international peacebuilding. 

She, and the National Peace Academy USA (NPA), of which Dot is a founding trustee, with George Mason University (GMU) and its School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR) are stepping into the future of peacebuilding together to expand Point of View (PoV), an international retreat and research center at GMU to include the Elise Boulding National  Peace Academy House,  where peacebuilders can hone their skills.  (See http://scar.gmu.edu/point-of-view and www.nationalpeaceacademy.us)  PoV will be dedicated in early 2016.

This “civilian Camp David” is a place where:

  • everyone learns to resolve conflict prior to escalation to violence
  • cutting edge research is used to develop new forms of peacebuilding
  • Community Policing training is offered and law enforcement officers are trained in state of the art forms of conflict prevention
  • Restorative justice practitioners from across the country and the world share lessons learned and emerging challenges
  • social emotional learning is a priority and attitudes change leading to different cultural norms in support of peace – living in harmonious relationship with self others and the world around us
  • cohorts of people doing work on the ground in conflict zones globally come together -- breaking down silos to inspire more effective cooperation on behalf of the common good.

Dorothy J. Maver, Ph.D. (aka Dot) is an educator and peacebuilder who has worked for many years and in many capacities on peacebuilding. She is currently a Project Director with Kosmos Associates.  She served as the Executive Director of the Peace Alliance/ Campaign for a U.S. Department of Peace(building), founding president and Trustee of the National Peace Academy, Executive Director of The River Phoenix Center for Peacbuilding and as national campaign manager for Kucinich for President 2004. She is also a founding board member of the Global Alliance for Ministries and Infrastructures of Peace (GAMIP).  To see Dot’s presentation at the October 2015 Peace Alliance Conference in Washington DC, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6ebD-Yaw5s.
