Have you felt like you wanted to change the world, but you do not know where to start?

Program ‘’Constructive use of veteran experience – Kuvi’’ is conducted in cooperation with Center for war trauma from Novi Sad. Basic idea of this program is to offer approaches and models for quality use of war experience for common good and sustainable peace building in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Models which are combined of experience and knowledge as a result of previous work offer new ways of work and different approaches regarding specific target groups. This one particularly is based upon opening of the dialogue between veterans and young people.
The Global Campus Conference 2017 – ”Liquid reconciliation: Global perspectives, Glocal realities” (Sarajevo, April 4-6) is focused on the nexus between human rights protection and the perspective of reconciliation in divided societies. The conditions under which reconciliation and the defense of human rights are treated depend on a variety of aspects, according to the historical events and the individual tragedies experienced in each country/region. Therefore, the comparative approach is the mark for each proposed panel of the conference. The key concepts the conference will tackle are memory, justice and the role of the truth and reconciliation commissions, dealing with the past as well as empathy, forgiveness and the social cleavages.
Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies
Conference “Restoring peace: building post-conflict societies”
Date: July 3, 2017
Place: Liverpool Hope University, Creative Campus
Deadline: April 15, 2017
Academic interest in peace building has traditionally looked at societies in transition to peace in the immediate years following a conflict. Yet, less is known about peace building as a long-term process. This conference aims to explore the ways that a multiplicity of actors and processes advance peace and stability in societies overcoming conflict. It also seeks to interrogate not only traditional issues related to peacebuilding such as security, human rights and economic development, but also aspects related to the symbolic and cultural expressions of reconciliation and social cohesion.
The WORLD PEACE CONFERENCE 2017 will focus on how to prevent and mediate conflict. It is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and solutions with professionals from government, business, healthcare, media, and faith-based organizations. Diverse perspectives will challenge our thinking.
The Institute for Peace and Development (IPD) is pleased to announce that registration has opened for the I Global Peace Conference 2017: Theme “View to Peacebuilding, Security and Human Rights in Modern World”. The conference will take place in Baar, Switzerland on the 29 – 31 May, 2017.
School-community projects meeting social challenges
School projects provide a concrete framework for combined learning, training, information, action and new encounters. They make learning more engaging, enable experiences of successful participation and civil engagement and promote the development of young people’s competences and skills needed for life and work in the 21st century. Addressing relevant topics and burning issues of their living environment challenges students and teachers to look beyond their own lives and horizons. By taking action together with their partners they achieve meaningful impacts in their communities. In addition, the international experience and exchange at the Academy provides a broader European perspective.
