UPCOMING SEMINARS

SPRING 2020

WAR AND PEACE

Critical Deliberations on Conflict, Peacebuilding and Finding Hope in Challenging Times

22-28

MARCH

Held at Merton College

University of Oxford

 

War understood as an intractable human constant can often be demoralizing. Yet there is much to celebrate in successful peace building endeavors, strategic moral diplomacy, and the resilience of the human spirit. The study of war and peace at the University of Oxford dates back to the 1500s with notable contributions to just war thinking and the ethics of war. This seminar will address new challenges linked to global health, women in war, developments in peace technology, the environment, forced migration, violent non-state groups, and the role of economic development. We will host a training session for our global women's narratives project with themes of religion, war and peace, global health, identity, gendered violence, and life's work. Our Spring 2020 seminar features new interactive sessions created by our 2020 Fellows on the practice of moral courage, international humanitarian law, and art and poetry in conflict zones. More on our Fellows here.

This week-long seminar commences on Sunday afternoon, March 22nd, and ends Saturday morning, March 28th.  The daily schedule is generally 9:00am to 3:45pm, with two evening sessions and one afternoon free to tour Oxford.

DESTINATION WEEKS JULY 6 - 10, 2020

The Oxford Initiative for Global Ethics and Human Rights views fieldwork and lived experience as critical components of engaging issues in peace and conflict. With this in mind, our summer seminar in 2020 will offer attending delegates a workshop of multidisciplinary approaches during their week in Oxford, followed by one week of of study, fieldwork, and meetings with actors in relevant destinations. Delegates will select a destination of either Northern Ireland or Greece.

 

Schedule at Oxford: Participants will meet together in the mornings as one group, in the afternoons we will separate into two parallel study tracks as preparation for the field components in Belfast and Thessaloniki.
