This public lecture is presented by RMIT University, the Institute for Economics and Peace, and The Rotary Foundation.
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.
