Biographical Information

Louise Diamond was a founder and co-founder of several peace study policy groups, including Sunray Meditation Society in Lincoln, VT, the Institute for Multi-Track Diplomacy in Washington, D.C., The Peace Company in Bristol, VT, and Networks Inc. in Burlington, VT. As a citizen peacemaker, she traveled globally to teach peacebuilding and nonviolent conflict resolution - often in active war zones - as well as supported other peacemakers in their endeavors. Diamond wrote many articles on the subject of peace and conflict resolution, and the articles were published in a wide variety of journals, magazines, and books. She held several degrees, including a Ph.D. in Peace Studies from the Union Institute in Cincinnati, Ohio (1990). Diamond was a longtime resident of Vermont, USA, and passed away in May 2015.
