Jamie Price, Ph.D.

Jamie Price, Ph.D., is the Executive Director of the Sargent Shriver Peace Institute. Having been with SSPI since its inception in 2004, he has developed its programming and organizational systems, including its mission, research agenda, program partnerships, financial systems, and investment protocols. Jamie is responsible for SSPI’s academic partnerships, including its affiliation with the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (S-CAR) at George Mason University, a school that he was instrumental in establishing.

Jamie’s most recent academic work addresses the problem of developing a foundational methodology in conflict resolution, peacebuilding, and leadership for social change, and his touchstone in this effort is the example and achievement of Sargent Shriver. In this connection, he writes articles and essays for a range of scholarly and popular publications and leads the development and implementation of a number of practical initiatives, including a multi-city project with police departments and community groups to explain and mitigate problems of retaliatory violence in local communities, a joint effort with an international development organization to evaluate the peacebuilding impact of development projects in post-conflict environments, and a cooperative venture with the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) to develop a professional graduate studies program in leadership for social innovation.

Jamie holds several academic posts, including those of research professor and Founding Director of the Insight Conflict Resolution Program in the School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University, and affiliate professor in the Mediterranean Academy of Diplomatic Studies at the University of Malta.  He also serves on the board of the Sargent Shriver National Center for Poverty Law.

Jamie holds a Ph.D. from the Divinity School of the University of Chicago.
