Global Consultant for Peace and Justice

Dan Buttry is the Global Consultant for Peace and Justice with International Ministries of the American Baptist Churches. That means that he works around the world, usually on short term peace projects. His area of specialty is conflict transformation. Simply put, conflict transformation means turning conflict from negative, destructive experiences into positive, constructive experiences in which problems are solved, unjust relationships are structured in more just ways, violence is replaced by nonviolent means of dealing with disagreements, torn relationships are reconciled, decisions become more participatory and traumatized people are supported for healing.
