The John Cain Luncheon with the Initiative for Peacebuilding
Join Professor John Langmore and Dr Tania Miletic to discuss the launch of the Initiative for Peacebuilding at the University of Melbourne.
Launched in April 2021, the Initiative for Peacebuilding brings together research, teaching, and policy development from a wide range of disciplines to support effective engagement in conflict prevention and peacebuilding in the Indo-Pacific region.
One of the essential conditions for global security and wellbeing is achievement of relative peace. Peace is pursued through the prevention and transformation of violent conflicts and the conditions that give rise to these, and support for the attitudes, institutions and structures that can sustain peaceful societies.
There is great value in widening the range of official and non-official multi-level mechanisms available for dialogue, problem-solving and sustained peacebuilding efforts.
The Initiative for Peacebuilding will provide Australia with a nationally based, regionally grounded, high-quality, professional non-government peace centre. The Initiative's mission is to promote multidisciplinary research, teaching, policy development to support effective engagement in conflict prevention and peacebuilding in the Indo-Pacific region.
Come along to hear Professor Langmore and Dr Miletic from the Initiative discuss how this project that will enable Australia to embrace its place in the world.
