US Institute of Peace USIP is the independent, nonpartisan conflict management center created by Congress to prevent and mitigate international conflict without resorting to violence. USIP works to save lives, increase the government's ability to deal with conflicts before they escalate, reduce government costs, and enhance our national security. USIP works to reduce the costs and risks for American military and civilians deployed to conflict areas abroad by training them to peacefully mitigate and manage conflicts. Our work helps to create safe and stable environments for people living and Americans working in these regions. In Iraq, the tribal reconciliation USIP mediated in Mahmoudiya served as the model for the U.S. reconciliation strategy that dramatically reduced American military and Iraqi civilian casualties, as reported by TIME magazine. “Over the next six months Iraqi civilian deaths in the area fell 75 percent—from 1,200 per month to 300 per month; while US military deaths fell from a dozen per month to zero.” (TIME, 19 October 2007) USIP played a leading role in preventing electoral violence in South Sudan and continues to help keep the Sudan Peace Accord on track. USIP has been working with tribal chiefs, state judges, police and other stakeholders to improve cooperation and to develop an integrated approach to the rule of law, so that South Sudan can move beyond its history of violence. | The Two Sudans Since 2002, USIP has analyzed Afghanistan’s justice systems and recommended methods to strengthen the rule of law. USIP is helping to bridge the gap between informal and formal justice sectors and thereby prevent village and district-level disputes from spiraling out of control.

The American University in Cairo was founded in 1919 by Americans devoted to education and community service in the Middle East. Today, AUC is the region’s premier English-language University — an essential contributor to the social, political and cultural life of the Arab world. It also serves as a crossroads for the world’s cultures: a vital, vibrant forum for reasoned argument, spirited debate and understanding across cultures. AUC is an independent, nonprofit, apolitical, non-sectarian and equal-opportunity institution, fully accredited in Egypt and the United States. AUC’s academic program is rooted in liberal education. The University’s rigorous Core Curriculum offers an intensive investigation of fundamental questions in every major discipline. In our increasingly globalized society, AUC offers a vital bridge between the cultures of East and West, linking Egypt and the region to the United States and the rest of the world through scholarly research, study-abroad programs and partnerships with academic and research institutions. AUC builds leadership, lifelong learning, continuing education and service among its graduates and is dedicated to making significant contributions to Egypt and the international community in diverse fields. Chartered and accredited in the United States and Egypt, AUC upholds the principles of academic freedom and is dedicated to excellence. Through its high quality liberal arts education, AUC provides the room for AUC students to think critically, engage with the world’s religious, political and cultural disciplines and find creative solutions to conflicts and challenges facing both the region and the world. AUC faculty and students share a common vision to improve Egypt, the Middle East and the contemporary world through its community-based learning courses, community-service clubs and research centers. A window onto Egypt and the world at large, it acts as a regional think tank for leading intellectuals, scholars, researchers and expert cadres to come together, debating public policy issues; engaging in outreach programs; providing a platform for the propagation of ideas to help solve contemporary social, political and economic problems; and conducting interdisciplinary research that has far-reaching implications in a variety of fields including science, technology, desert development, gender studies, American studies, and economic and business history. Our nearly 5,000 undergraduates come from every corner of Egypt and from 113 countries around the world. As they graduate, they join a worldwide network of more than 30,000 AUC alumni, who are leaders in finance and commerce, law and engineering, politics and culture, community service and computer science. The University boasts the largest English-language library in Egypt, and AUC Press is the leading publisher of English-language books in the Arab world. The university’s 260-acre New Cairo Campus represents a major investment in the future of the city, the country, and the region — a state-of-the-art facility for advanced research, innovative teaching and civic engagement
