Some of the recent work that makes us proud

CVE Symposium

On April 6-7, 2016, IPSI and Creative Associates gathered leading thinkers, policymakers, digital pioneers, religious leaders, military experts and development practitioners at the CVE Symposium in Washington, DC to discuss the toughest challenges in countering and preventing violent extremism. Presenters and participants engaged in an inclusive exchange of information through conversations and interactive workshops.

UN Resolution 1325

This IPSI-designed interactive training course for the Institute for Inclusive Security will introduce users to UN Security Council Resolution 1325 and national action plans. After completing this 30-minute module, users will understand why these plans are important, what’s needed to make a NAP high-impact, and what a user can do in their own country.

Frontline Civilians

IPSI is currently designing a series of interactive flexible materials that prepare U.S. Civil Servants and the Foreign Service Community serving in foreign environments, particularly high-stress environments, to increase their resilience skills, their literacy on PTSD and related trauma and stressor- related disorders (SRDs), and their ability to cope with traumatic events at an individual and organizational level.

Religion & Conflict

The Religion & Conflict Project for U.S. Foreign Affairs Officials conceptualized, designed, and built by IPSI for the U.S. Department of State, the Foreign Service Institute, and USAID, is the most complete, complex, and targeted training on the topic currently available in the world, utilizing new technologies and newly developed theory to target varying learning styles and comfort-levels with the topic.  Through this flexible modular online training, U.S. Foreign Affairs Officials learn how to build authentic, long-term partnerships with religious actors and institutions in order to prevent and resolve violent conflict.

Kaleidoscopic Conflict

IPSI, supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York, is leading a project to pull together some of the best thinking on complexity into a set of feasible reforms to set government agencies on a path toward more adaptive or entrepreneurial approaches to conflict prevention, engagement, and recovery. Specific recommendations will be geared toward reforms and investments that could be made in the United States early in the next Congress and Administration.

Rotary International: “Peace Is…”

IPSI and the Rotarian Action Group for Peace (Peace RAG), in collaboration with leadership from Rotary International, scripted and produced a 5-minute animated video to clearly illustrate the Global Peace System concept for Rotarians, inspire action to build Peace Projects, and give Rotarians the tools to further their peace work. The video premiered at the 2015 Rotary International Convention in Sao Paulo, Brazil in June 2015 and immediately went viral among Rotarians.
