Event description

Description

Please join us on 4 May 2019 for the 6th Annual Seminar of the Uppsala Rotary Peace Center! The Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University hosts one of the six Rotary International Peace Centers worldwide, bringing students from many different parts of the world to pursue Master’s studies in Peace and Conflict at Uppsala University.

The topic of this year’s seminar is "Gender in Peace and Conflict Studies". Class XVI Rotary Peace Fellows will present their research and share examples of their own work for peace and positive change from different corners of the world. We are delighted to announce that the keynote speaker will be Professor Miriam Coronel-Ferrer, who was the chief negotiator for the Government of the Philippines during the Mindanao Peace Talks and signed the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front in 2014. She is noted as the first woman in the world to sign a final peace deal with a rebel group.

The Annual Seminar will take place at Sal X (in the University Main Building, Uppsala) from 9.00 am to 4:30 pm. Lunch and coffee will be served.

A detailed program will be sent out later to confirmed participants. Please note that places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration closes on 19 April.

Should you require accommodation in Uppsala, let us know and we will recommend hotels in the vicinity of the conference venue. Please note that the center is not able to cover your expenses for travel and accommodation.

On behalf of the Host Area Coordinator of the Uppsala Rotary Peace Center, Tore Samuelsson (toresamuelsson1@gmail.com), we would like to inform you that a dinner is planned for the evening after the Annual Seminar. Invitations for this event are distributed separately.
