"Indeed! Most lists do not comprehensively list programs in Africa, Asia or Latin America... work in progress!"

"Sue, check out Craig's list of peace and conflict resolution programs in the US and abroad. Perhaps not comprehensive, but close. http://www.internationalpeaceandconflict.org/page/guides-to-academic-programs. Cheers, Jonathan"

Comprehensive List of all US Universities and Colleges that have a Peace and Justice Program.

Hi all!!After an unsuccessful search on the web, I thought people here might have access to a database of all of the US universities and colleges (both religious and non) that have Peace and Justice programs at their school. Also, it would be amazing if someone had a list of these schools internationally too! This is all in effort to create a great audience engagement campaign for the new feature documentary "The Peace Agency" which can be utilized by schools worldwide. Here is the trailer: …See More

Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I am the director and producer at Spotted Frog Productions. It was created when I took a camera, microphone, tripod, and a lot of questions to Indonesia in 2006. Along the way, after countless interviews with all members of society, I stumbled into the story of Fabianus Tibo, who was executed for his alledged role in a communal conflict in remote Poso, Central Sulawesi. Taken by the story, I directed, produced, wrote, and edited “Which Way to the War?”, an investigative feature documentary about the Poso conflict, which became award-winning in the film festival circuit. I was also a producer and broadcaster for the Indonesian Service at the Voice of America (VOA) in Washington, D.C., for five years.

Spotted Frog Productions has worked in Indonesia, Nepal, Senegal, and the United States. Under the direction of Sue Useem, we focus on producing cutting-edge documentaries that bring unknown stories to the screen, while employing a diverse and talented group of media and film specialists.

I hold a degree in Philosophy from Gettysburg College, and I attended the Antioch Buddhist Studies program in Bodh Gaya, India in 2003. I've been to 28 countries and I am trying to make that 30 before turn 30!

In my free time I really like to nap.

Feature documentary looking for strategic partnerships with peace, gender, and justice organizations.

Posted on November 21, 2011 at 9:30pm 11 Comments

To the community,

I am posting this in hopes of starting a great partnership between my upcoming feature documentary The Peace Agency and organizations that are committed to empowering women and ending conflict.

The Peace Agency is about a grassroots women’s school for peace and equality in the conflict zone of Poso, Indonesia. Featured in the film is Lian Gogali, the founder of the school, who faces seemingly insurmountable professional and personal struggles…

Project Sophia Mobile Library--Books without borders for post-conflict children in Indonesia

Heartfelt happiness is a precious thing for children who live in times of conflict and post conflict. Their childhood is taken away and replaced by horrible and traumatic experiences such as shooting, killing, burning, torture, and they have to run for their life and become refugees in the forest for months. No more time to play, let alone practical joke. The only thing available for them is terror.
In post conflict period, the world they live in is a world protected by…

The Power to Rebuild in Poso

Posted on October 18, 2011 at 12:41am 0 Comments

Before a crowd of thousands of Poso residents in late 2009, roughly three years after Christian-Muslim violence in the region had ended, Poso district head Piet Inkiriwang extolled the virtues of investment. ‘If investors come to Poso, we will all shower in money,’ he told the crowd. ‘You’ll have bucketloads.’ These buckets of money were to come from new jobs and compensation payments for land that investors would need.

Economic development is essential to rebuild Poso. But investment…

Hi Sue,

 

I don't know if you read your comments section.  I watched your video, Which Way to the War?  Wow, what a great job!  I was stunned to read that you are self taught, well didn't you do a good job?!

I can envision using your video in the classroom someday.  

Would you care to get some commentary, a critique, of your video?  I don't want to offer opinions and reactions without an invitation.  But really, Sue, you've done a super job.

 

Alan
