Biography

Jeremy Rinker completed his doctorate from George Mason University’s Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution (GMU-ICAR) in May 2009. His research on the over 50 year-old Ambedkar Buddhist social movement in Maharashtra, India is a provocative approach to understanding the often un-explored connections between social justice, conflict resolution, and social movement organizations. Jeremy’s previous professional experiences have included two years as a Peace Corps volunteer (Kazakhstan ’95-’97), international NGO work on humanitarian aid and development projects in the Former Soviet Union, Africa, and Asia, restorative justice advocacy work, and conflict resolution teaching, practice, and training. Jeremy has been an Assistant Professor of Conflict Studies at DePauw University for the past two years 2009-2011 and started teaching at Guilford College in the fall of 2011.
