Please read: Important information for guests attending public events at USIP.

Fifty years after its establishment as an American force for world peace and friendship, the Peace Corps has evolved, branching out to work in post-conflict countries such as Rwanda, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Uganda, Kenya and Guinea. These complex environments create unique challenges for Peace Corps Volunteers and the organization that must ensure their safety and effectiveness. What are the challenges for operating in these environments? How might individuals be best prepared for service in war-ravaged societies?  

The United States Institute of Peace has been operating in and training others to work in post-conflict conditions for decades. The United States Institute of Peace and the Peace Corps are partnering to commemorate the Peace Corps’ 50th anniversary with this panel discussion on post-conflict environments and the requirements for preparing and protecting Volunteers who serve in them.
