Transcending Boundaries to Build a Global Civil Society: The Role of International Education

The NAFSA Ron Moffatt Seminar, part of NAFSA's Annual Conference and Expo, will bring together thought leaders and practitioners in peacebuilding, reconciliation and conflict resolution, and educators focused on teaching and facilitating transnational education, to explore how educators can help students find their place in and develop a commitment to a global civil society.

Presentations and participant discussions will focus on the resolution of sectarian barriers and conflicts, as well as those surrounding resource disparities and issues of sustainability. Seminar participants will explore in depth the role that international educators can play to contribute to understanding and overcoming barriers and conflicts.

Necla Tschirgi, PhD, professor of practice at the Kroc School, will be one of four featured speakers, in addition to the keynote, Michael Ignatieff, PhD.

The seminar will be held at the University of San Diego in the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice. More Information and Register. On-site registration for the NAFSA Ron Moffatt Seminar on Peace and the Global Civil Society is available only until 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 30, at the conference registration area in the San Diego Convention Center.
