War Prevention Initiative at Rotary World Peace Conference

Under the theme of “Real Solutions to Real Problems”, the 2020 Rotary World Peace Conference was held in Ontario, CA. War Prevention Initiative Executive Director Patrick Hiller was invited to present on the topic of “Recognizing the Science of Peace to Advance Positive Peace”. He argued that by examining how and where long-term, sustainable peace has been achieved, peace scientists can provide orientation and offer relevant advice toward transforming worldwide militarism and intractable conflicts into cultures of peace and peaceful societies.

Addressing an audience primarily consisting of Rotarians who attended the conference, Patrick suggested that Rotarians can integrate peace research insights into the already existing peace commitments in the real of Rotary.
