Privacy Policy

Our Privacy Policy describes how we use and safeguard any information you provide on this form.

Please use this form to privately send us your comments and suggestions on the Constructive Conflict Statement and to indicate your willingness to participate in the initiative (which can mean simply signing the statement or participating in next-step activities).  All form submissions are emailed  to us immediately upon receipt, so this is a fast way to contact us. We will try to respond quickly.  In addition, you can use our discussion board system to participate in an online, Public Discussion about the Statement. Thank you.

If you would prefer to send us a message directly and not use the structured question and answer section below, please do so here.
It would help us if you could tell us a bit about your background and the perspective from which you view intractable conflict-related problems. (Our goal is to be able to craft a final version of the statement that people from a wide range of perspectives can support.)
In principle, does this seem like an effort worth pursuing?
Do you have any specific suggestions for improving either the substance or the language of our initial draft documents?
Are there other people who you think we should contact at this draft stage?
Assuming that you are in agreement on the final language, would your and/or your organization be interested in co-sponsoring a final statement and distributing it through your networks? (If there is interest, we would create a new website and URL for the project to make it clear to all that sponsors are not endorsing anything further than the Constructive Conflict Statement.)
Might you be interested in helping us develop and pursue this idea? If so, what might you be interested in doing?
Do you have thoughts or suggestions about next steps that should be taken to pursue these ideas further?
Are you aware of individuals or funding organizations who might be willing to support our initial effort to develop and publicize the ideas?

If you are so inclined, we would appreciate any support you might be able to offer. You can use a credit card to contribute financially to the project through the Beyond Intractability Project Fund at the University of Colorado Foundation. More information about the donation process and options in found on our Donations page. 

Thanks for taking the time to look at this. We hope that you will get involved. We owe it to our children and grandchildren to do whatever we can to mobilize a much larger effort to address the conflict problems that are at the core of so many of society's disturbing trends
