Northeastern professor Denise Garcia was recently named a Nobel Peace Institute Fellow—a program that brings together some of the brightest minds in various fields to research issues of pressing global significance. She’s spent the past few weeks collaborating with other scholars in Oslo, Norway, to assess—and determine a path toward—global resilient peace.
