International Studies in Peace and Conflict Resolution
A vitally important part of the work of Rotary International is the establishment of Rotary Centers for International Studies in peace and conflict resolution. Rotary Peace Centers exist in six universities throughout the world, including the University of Bradford, here in the UK. Read more about the programme on the RI website.
December 2012 - We've just received a message from Kelvin Rushworth, with a request to set up a link to "Peace Net", the newsletter of the Rotary International Peace Centers :-
"Looking forward to next year (!) when I become the first ever 1030 Foundation Sub Committee Chair concentrating on the work of the TRF Peace Centres (!!), I want to begin raising the profile of the Peace Centres Programme (especially, in due course, our 'local centre' at Bradford University)."
So, thanks to Kelvin, here is the link to the latest edition of Peace Net.
Kelvin has also sent us some information from the first Rotary Global Peace Forum, held in Berlin between 30 November and 2 December 2012, when more than 1,800 Rotarians, community leaders, and students and alumni of the Rotary Peace Centres programme gathered in Berlin from 30 November to 2 December to promote peace and world understanding:-
A press release summarising the event; the formal "Peace Without Borders" Declaration;
a Personal Reflection and a "Rotary Moment" . They make interesting reading.
