“Sustaining the Long Peace”
Name: “Sustaining the Long Peace”
Date: April 10, 2018
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM CDT
“Sustaining the Long Peace”What do we mean when we talk about peace? Is it possible to measure peacefulness? What conditions foster peace, and how can Rotary help create them? “Sustaining the Long Peace” is the final event in the Pathways to Peace series organized by Rotary International in partnership with the University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy. Using TEDx-style presentations, panelists will discuss how a new generation of peacebuilders are working in communities around the world to ensure that today’s challenges – from a record migrant population, to increasing unrest with global institutions of governance – do not undermine the reduction in overall violence in the last century.
This free event will take place on Tuesday, 10 April, in the auditorium at RI World Headquarters (1560 Sherman Avenue, Evanston) from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Speakers include Rotary Peace Fellows Susan Stigant, Director of Africa Programs at the U.S. Institute of Peace, and Abdi Ahmed, who has created innovative programs to integrate refugees in Canada. Harris Public Policy Alumni who will speak include Kristen Hajduk, Counterterrorism Fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, and Hafsah Lak, who was instrumental in the creation of a first-of-its-kind Violence Against Women Center in Pakistan. A reception will follow immediately afterwards.
