Campus life in the United States is a microcosm of identity-based differences, capable of providing a promising ground for dialogue and mutual learning. However, these differences can also become a basis for identity-based discrimination, stereotyping, and hatred when members of the campus communities internalize the polarizing effects of political divisions, international conflicts, and/or other powerful forces in society.

TRANSCEND Member Prof. Tatsushi Arai, a peacebuilding scholar-practitioner with twenty-five years of international experience, reflects on the sources and nature of hatred in the context of identity-based conflict. He also explores practical lessons from diverse conflict-affected societies to better understand and overcome identity-based divisions and hatred prevailing across US university campuses.
