William Joiner Institute

for the Study of War and Social Consequences

The William Joiner Institute for the Study of War and Social Consequences promotes research, curriculum development, events, and educational, cultural, and humanitarian exchanges which foster conversations about addressing the consequences of war.

By serving veterans, family members of veterans, war refugees and all victims of war, we aim to create a public space where the issues of war and their human, social, political, and environmental consequences can be openly discussed, debated, and analyzed.
