13-14/04 - Peace History: Encouragement and Warnings

A conference at the Imperial War Museum in London organised by the Movement for the Abolition of War.

Peace History: Encouragement and Warnings
A 2-Day Non-Residential Conference
At the Imperial War Museum, Lambeth Road, London SE1
13-14 April 2007

This conference aims to bring to the public aspects of peacebuilding history which have been overlooked or even forgotten. Yet it is on the foundations laid by those who preceded us that we now atruggle for a world of respect for law and nonviolent conflict resolution.

The focus will be on 19th and 20th century examples of practical peacekeeping. The speakers, from different countries, are all experts in their own field. There will be plenty of opportunity for general discussion.

For registration form write to: MAW History Conference, 11 Venetica Road, London N4 1EJ or visit: www.abolishwar.org.uk
