Enhancing the vision for peacebuilding and reconciliation at UFV and in the community

The first of its kind in British Columbia, the Peace and Reconciliation Centre (PARC) is linked to many academic programs including, Peace and Conflict Studies, Indigenous Studies, History, Global Development Studies, Criminology, and Social Work, in ways that support the Centre’s outreach and educational goals. The dominant approach of the Centre to date has been to collaborate with stakeholders and to conduct research to facilitate constructive dialogue that supports conflict transformation and reconciliation.

The scale of conflict ranges from the nation state to individuals and across a vast breadth of collision sources including but not limited to domestic violence, access to resources, territory, ethnicity, faith, and colonialism. Research and engagement activities that focus on peace and reconciliation are supported, regardless of geographic, social, or temporal context.
