Description

The Permanent Mission of Finland to the United Nations, the International Network of Historians without Borders, and the International Peace Institute (IPI) are pleased to invite you to a Global Leader Series lunchtime discussion with H.E. Mr. Erkki Tuomioja, former Minister for Foreign Affairs of Finland. The event will take place at IPI on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, from 1:00pm to 2:30pm.

Leveraging historical knowledge is pivotal for countries seeking to implement policies aimed at promoting peaceful and inclusive societies. Indeed, discussing historical narratives can be a useful tool for identifying lessons learned and, more importantly, to recognize elements of peace and resilience within societies. At this event, Mr. Tuomioja will discuss the importance of history and the use of historical knowledge in sustaining peace.
