Breaking Barriers:
What it will take to achieve security, justice and peace
September 26-28, 2012
Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice

 

We are now at the end of August - "Breaking Barriers: What it will take to achieve security, justice and peace" is only one month away! We hope you will be able to join us at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice for this international conference of peacebuilders held in conjunction with the 10th anniversary of the Women PeaceMakers Program.


This singular working conference will convene nearly 40 Women PeaceMakers from 33 countries with other peacebuilders and human rights defenders to strategize how to overcome both the age-old and newly systematized impediments to peace. Understanding that peace does not come at the end of conflict but with the rise of justice, panel presentations, workshops and breakout working sessions will engage delegates to formulate recommendations under three primary areas: security, justice and peace.
