"Economic crises, cultural differences, fresh water shortages and resource depletion, climate change, ethnic strife, and the often unhealthy forms of conflict that come with these realities demand more peaceful, cooperative, and creative decision making. These require new forms and practices of governance. The Center for the Study of Conflict, Collaboration and Creative Governance (3CG) was formed in response to this need. 3CG strives to bring to light, engage with, and promote dialogue and exchange around new governance structures, collaborative and effective decision making processes, and advanced communication concepts and practices that help people develop creative, just, and mutually beneficial choices. 3cg supports research and teaching that directly addresses issues of peace and conflict at personal, local, regional and international levels, exploring alternative, more creative forms of dispute resolution, decision making and governance." -- from Website

"People across the globe, from all cultures and traditions, embrace love and forgiveness in daily life. These values are universally viewed as central to the fabric of humanity. Yet, the emerging global community has few institutions dedicated to deepening the understanding and fostering deeper awareness of these values. In this context, the Fetzer Institute pursues a unique role — working to investigate, activate, and celebrate the power of love and forgiveness as a practical force for good in today's world. We are interested in how people truly experience and understand love and forgiveness from their diverse points of view, especially from the perspective of their daily work in the world." -- from Website The Fetzer Institute has supported the collaboration between the Love and Forgiveness in Governance project and Beyond Intractability / CRInfo.

"JAMS, the nation's premier provider of private dispute resolution services, established the non-profit JAMS Foundation to offer financial assistance for conflict resolution initiatives with national or international impact and to share its dispute resolution experience and expertise for the benefit of the public interest. Funded entirely by contributions from JAMS, JAMS neutrals, and employee associates, the Foundation's mission is to encourage the use of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), support education at all levels about collaborative processes for resolving differences, promote innovation in conflict resolution, and advance the settlement of conflict worldwide." -- from Website
