Summit

What is Summit?

Summit will be:

  • An expansive database of information and resources
  • An accessible network of top researchers and experts
  • A location for people to collaborate on sustainable development and conflict transformation

The unique initiative called Summit is a comprehensive effort to share successful solutions to the injustice and violence suffered by mountain peoples worldwide. The heart of Summit is a database of information and resources that will become the world's largest collection of knowledge about sustainable development and conflict transformation. Humanitarian missions across the world will be aided by having better access to strategies that have worked well in other parts of the world. Summit is part of Utah Valley University's Peace and Justice Studies program, directed by Michael Minch, professor of political philosophy, peace, and conflict.
