Bio

Lowell Ewert is Professor Emeritus in Peace and Conflict Studies (PACS) from Conrad Grebel University College, affiliated with the University of Waterloo, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. He retired in 2020 after 23 years of teaching and university program management. During the two decades he served as Director of PACS, he was responsible for launching a continuing education Certificate Program in Conflict Management that has enrolled over 10,000 community participants since its inception, and proposing and implementing both a BA and a Master of PACS program.  

His research and teaching interests focus on the intersection of law (domestic and international) and peace, as well as civil society as a means to practically manifest democratic ideals. He has taught courses on conflict resolution, peace and disability, fair trade, peace and business, peace in perilous times, peace and policing, international humanitarian law, civil society, peace is everyone’s business, and ended his career co-teaching a course on the link between mathematics and peace. His most recent publication in 2021 is an edited book entitled Peace is Everyone’s Business, and features authors from a dozen different disciplines wrestling with the notion that every university discipline, and every vocation, has a responsibility to build peace.

Prior to becoming a university professor, Ewert worked for 11 years in international development, living for a period of time in Lebanon, Jordan, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Kazakhstan, as well as providing headquarters oversight to projects in an additional eight countries in the Middle East, Balkans, and Central Asia. He earned a Juris Doctor from Washburn University School of Law, and an LL.M in International Law from American University Washington College of Law, and practiced poverty law in Kansas for two years.
