Conflict Prevention and Resolution Speaker Series

The Conflict Prevention and Resolution Speaker Series, which began in 2014, seeks to provide the MCLA and Northern Berkshire communities with a forum to better understand sources of world conflicts and explore paths to resolve them. The series was established through the Peace and International Understanding Fund, an endowment created by Al Boschen, a longtime Berkshire County resident who was passionate about world peace and international communication. Recent speakers include the Washington Post’s Joanna Slater and the Boston Globe’s Kevin Cullen.
