Conflict Information Consortium

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Conflict Information Consortium, directed by Guy and Heidi Burgess, was founded in 1988 at the University of Colorado with a grant from the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. It was--and still is--a multi-disciplinary center for research and teaching about conflict and its transformation. (It was originally named the Conflict Resolution Consortium, but we changed the name when we started focusing on intractable conflicts, which are seldom resolved.)

With the Burgesses' retirement from their research and teaching positions at the University of Colorado, the Conflict Information Consortium (the parent organization for Beyond Intractability and the Constructive Conflict Initiative) will be discontinued as a University program effective May 15, 2020. However, as retired faculty, the Burgesses are committed to maintaining and continuing to develop the Beyond Intractability system and pursuing the related Constructive Conflict Initiative after that date.
