Meet Aldo Civico

Senator George Mitchell called Aldo Civico “one of the most innovative leaders in the conflict resolution field.” He is the founder and director of The International Institute for Peace at Rutgers University in Newark, New Jersey, where he is an assistant professor in anthropology. Over the last 20 years, Civico has served as a strategic adviser and conflict resolution facilitator to organizations and communities in Italy, Haiti, Mexico, and Colombia. At the end of the 1980s in Italy, he was one of the founders of a social movement raising awareness against kidnappings, which at the time were a severe plague in his country. He moved on to serve from 1991 to 1995 as a senior adviser to anti-mafia leader and Mayor of Palermo, Leoluca Orlando. In that capacity, he helped to design communication strategies to encourage civic engagement in the fight against systemic corruption and the Mafia.
