Pollack Peacebuilding Systems is a conflict management consulting firm, led by anthropologist and conflict specialist Jeremy Pollack. Our professional consultants come from an array of backgrounds and academic disciplines, from anthropology to psychology to human resources management. We all have one thing in common, however: our passion and drive to bring more peace into this world. Whether it's between individuals, within a company, or among distinct communities, our conflict experts strive to improve relationships, create happier living and work environments, and make the world a better place to live in any modest way we can.
