David Cortright is the Director of Policy Studies at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame. In his extensive study entitled Gandhi and Beyond: Nonviolence for a New Political Age, (2009), he outlines multiple cases of practical successes of non-violent campaigns. For nonviolence to be rel¬evant it must be applicable to the most complex conflicts. Cortright will discuss its applicability in the Middle East, including his model for a “Free Israel and Palestine Campaign” to unite progressive Israelis, Palestinians and Americans “in a creative new civic coalition.”

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
