Event description

Description

What is "positive peace" and why is it important? How are governments, civil society and individuals pursuing positive peace? What more can be done? Can we measure the peacefulness of countries and regions, and to what end?

On the eve of the launch of the Global Peace Index 2017, join two of the world’s leading peacebuilding organisations to discuss these and other questions. Engage them in conversation about how, through their research, education and humanitarian programs they enable communities all over the world to build positive peace.

Featuring:

  • Alistair Gee, Chief Operating Officer, Institute for Economics & Peace

  • Paul Netzel, Chairman-Elect, The Rotary Foundation

The Institute for Economics and Peace, headquartered in Sydney, Australia publishes innovative research and tools about peacebuilding, with a focus on developing metrics to analyse peace and peacebuilding efforts, and quantify peace's economic value. IEP annually produces the innovative Global Peace Index and Positive Peace Index.

The Rotary Foundation, an arm of Rotary International, has had a century-long history of supporting and undertaking peacebuilding projects around the world. From literacy and peace to water and health, Rotary - and its global Foundation - is always working to better our world, and it stays committed to the end.
