THE COMMON GROUND AWARDS are presented annually to honor outstanding accomplishments in conflict resolution, negotiation, community building, and peacebuilding. Recipients have made significant contributions toward bridging divides and finding solutions to seemingly intractable problems. We honor those who have dealt with conflict in new ways, and who met crises with creativity, wisdom, and courage, and have inspired and brought hope to others. Recipients of the Awards work in their local communities or internationally. They show us what can be achieved when we work with, and for, each other.
