The Center on Religion, Culture & Conflict (CRCC) focuses critical attention on the complex ways in which cultures and religions interact in moments of crisis and conflict. We encourage scholarly understanding and conversation about the most problematic, and often tragic, intersections where religions and cultures meet.

Don Mullan launches peace tour at Drew CRCC
Earlier this year, Irish author and humanitarian Don Mullan accepted the Peace Through Truth & Reconciliation Award at CRCC’s Inaugural Gala and introduced his latest initiative: The Christmas Truce and Flanders Peace Field Project. During World War I, on and around Christmas Day in 1914, fighting ceased on the Western Front and soldiers shared in holiday celebrations and gestures of good will. The truce was popularized by the French film, Joyeux Noël and this year marks the 100th anniversary.
On Monday, September 22, 2014, Mullan launched his official tour of The Christmas Truce and Flanders Peace Field Project at a CRCC-exclusive event at 8:00 p.m. in Crawford Hall, The Ehinger Center, on Drew University campus. Read more.
