The Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice is pleased to invite you to "Breaking Barriers: What it will take to achieve security, justice and peace," an 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:
The keynote speaker for the conference will be Pakistani Human Rights Lawyer Asma Jahangir. Her talk on Sept. 27 at 7:00 p.m. will be a Joan B. Kroc Distinguished Lecture Series event that is open to the public. To RSVP, click here.
