CIE Interfaith Forum: Najeeba Syeed Miller

Najeeba Syeed Miller, professor of inter-religious education at Claremont School of Theology and Director of the Center for Global Peacebuilding, speaks on, “Prophetic Peacebuilding: Abrahamic Visions for Peace.” A practitioner and educator in conflict resolution among communities of ethnic and religious diversity, her involvements include conducting gang interventions, implementing diversity training in universities and public agencies, conflict resolution in public schools, and environmental conflict resolution.

She has published on developing mediation programs and community/police relations, intersections of religious family law and US courts, an Islamic perspective on just peacemaking and interfaith relations. Currently she is working on a book project which explores the role of Prophet Muhammad as a peacemaker and institutionalizing interfaith education.

Her expertise in conflict resolution has led her to train mediators working closely with conflict in India, Latin America, Guam, Afghanistan, Israel and Palestine. Her research and community activist efforts have focused on the role of women as agents of peacemaking.

A sought after speaker and resource person, Syeed Miller holds a BS degree from Guilford College and a J.D. from Indiana University School of Law.
