From Benjamin N. Cardozo School Of Law:

Each year, Cardozo’s Journal of Conflict Resolution presents the International Advocate for Peace Award toan individual who is exemplary in the field of conflict resolution.

From Cardozo Law, April 3, 2019:

[…] The Cardozo Commencement Ceremony will also include the presentation of the International Advocate for Peace Award to Sir Paul McCartney from students of the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution. In honoring McCartney, students cited five decades of songs that “celebrate love and understanding, empathy and connection—the foundations of peace that are the heart of the human struggle.”

The award is given annually to individuals and groups who have made significant contributions to advocating for peace. Past recipients include President Bill Clinton, Senator George Mitchell, Benjamin B. Ferencz, playwright Eve Ensler and songwriters Peter, Paul and Mary.

The Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution (CJCR), affiliated with Cardozo Law’s Kukin Program for Conflict Resolution, is one of the country’s preeminent legal journals of arbitration, negotiation, mediation, settlement, and restorative justice.
