Global Peace Leadership Conference Northern Ireland 2016

September 10, 2016 - September 13, 2016

Event Details

The Global Peace Leadership Conference Belfast 2016 convened a unique stakeholder group to examine the urgent ethical challenges of our time and to advance models of peacebuilding. While the response to violence and terrorism may include negative reactions like ethnic nationalisms and hatred, xenophobia, and local conflict, it can also catalyze innovative approaches that counter violent extremism through building cohesion, social justice and positive peace within our diverse and pluralistic societies.
