Conflict Transformation & Building a Sustainable Peace

The last two weeks have been full of beneficial lectures from topics ranging from International Humanitarian Law to the role of religion in Peacebuilding.

Kishu Daswani, A Professor of Law in Mumbai delving into questions around “Just War Theory

Dr. Chaiyan Rajchagool on the Moral Component of Peacebuilding

Some more conflict analysis tools by USAID from Jenn Weidman

An inspiring  morning with Mr Bhichai Rattakul talking about lessons from his time as Thai foreign Minister dealing with the Vietnam War & Pol Pot…

As the overall theme for this final module was Conflict Transformation I  found it really useful to hear past Rotary International President Mr Bhichai Rattakul emphasise the power of “the small things” when dealing with people but yet how to always hold onto to the bigger picture of how things will work out in the longer term 10/20 years down the road.
