Center for Mediation and Conflict Resolution [USIP] Law and Legal Definition

The Center for Mediation and Conflict Resolution is a part of the U.S. Institute of Peace (USIP) that designs and manages the Institute's efforts in areas where fighting is active. According to the Center, peace is not an absence of war; it is a virtue, a state of mind, a disposition for benevolence, confidence, and justice.

The Center conducts research, identifies best practices, develops new peacemaking tools, and supports related training and education efforts.
