For more than 17 years as a conflict resolution practitioner, facilitator and trainer, Daniel Orth has supported individuals and communities seeking to resolve conflict. He has done this by working with diverse stakeholders to analyze conflict dynamics, leading strategic planning processes, facilitating difficult conversations, and equipping individuals with skills, knowledge, and connections through training opportunities.
Orth is the Senior Program Manager at the Karuna Center for Peacebuilding where he designs and implements multi-year programs, leads peacebuilding trainings, and provides conflict analysis to national and multilateral organizations to build sustainable peace in areas at risk for violent conflict. Key to these efforts is working closely with local partners and building the capacity of communities to interrupt cycles of conflict, recognize shared needs, and prevent the spread of violent extremism. For more than five years, Orth was a program officer at the Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice where he led international and domestic conflict resolution and violence prevention programs. Most recently he was a Senior Project Manager at the National Conflict Resolution Center and previously spent eight years working in the U.S. education system as a history teacher and instructor of first-year teachers.
Orth holds a Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy (MALD) from the Fletcher School at Tufts University and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in political science and economics from Tulane University.
