As an international research and education institution, the Centre’s mandate is not only to produce research and analysis, but also to disseminate these knowledge products and make them relevant to different fields of practice. To meet this objective, the Centre regularly organizes public events to start the conversation around what makes societies more inclusive.
Organized under the theme, “Let’s build peace through diversity”, the Ottawa Peace Talks on April 19th aims to inspire reflection and discussion about how respect for diversity can promote more peaceful, inclusive societies, both in Canada and globally. This event marks the first time the Peace Talks are held in Canada. Speakers from diverse backgrounds will share their personal experiences, stories and ideas to highlight the importance of building peace through broad and diverse participation. The Ottawa Peace Talks will also look at the role of individual Canadians, and Canada as a whole, to support greater inclusion for peace at home and at the global level.
