On October 7, 2015, Professor Christian Davenport received the award for Engaged Scholarship from the Sie Center at the Denver Dialogues on Peace and Security. 

The Denver Dialogues on Peace and Security is part of a Sié Center initiative funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. This series of events is designed to create a public dialogue among academic and policy authorities on issues related to twenty-first century challenges to global peace and security, with a particular focus on nonviolent action in violent contexts.
