2012 Trudeau Scholar Matt Gordner is organizing with The Peace by Piece Initiative, a not-for-profit organization he created, an interactive day on 9 April 2013 on Israeli-Palestinian dialogue to help develop a model that serves as a corrective to the many criticisms of traditional forms of dialogue. This event is geared towards students, staff, and faculty with a working knowledge of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

Matthew founded The Peace by Piece Initiative, a graduate student organization in order to facilitate meaningful and inclusive dialogue on Israeli and Palestinian conflicts. Over time, The Peace by Piece Initiative became a not-for-profit organization and expanded to include sensitive issues of local and global scope including: Middle Eastern and Africa politics; environmental politics; gender and sexuality; the politics of the North; and dialogical theory. The organization's activities are ongoing across Canada and MENA (Middle East and North Africa).
