This website of the U.S. Institute of Peace (established by the U.S. Congress) announces several training modules for practitioners who use the rule of law for building peace and conflict handling through dialogue and compromise. The Academy’s practitioner-oriented courses, held at the USIP headquarters in Washington and elsewhere, prepare professionals for work in and on conflict zones. "The class was excellent. I have already recommendedit to colleagues. It was especially useful since I am on standby with the State Department's Civilian Response Corps."—Franklin Garcia, U.S. Department of State. "I am using the knowledge I got from your course to deliver ideas and information to the women's NGOs I'm working with all over Iraq, and they are changing their work plans accordingly."—Ferdos Majeed, National Democratic Institute for International Affairs.
