Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice, Theatre

The Kroc School’s Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice (Kroc IPJ) at the University of San Diego is pleased to invite you to the 2018 Women PeaceMaker Panel. Learn from and with this year's Women PeaceMakers about the powerful role women play in negotiating peace. The panel provides the opportunity for San Diego to build a deeper understanding around the groundbreaking strategies women use to bring governments, armed groups and communities affected by violence together to decide how to end war. 

The 2018 Women PeaceMakers — Rosa Emilia Salamanca (from Colombia), Roxana Cristescu (from Eurasia), Amira Abdulrahman Hussein Timan (from Sudan) and Mariam Yazdani (from Pakistan) — are extraordinary leaders who have been involved in some of the world's most historic peace processes. This year’s program focuses on how Women PeaceMakers and international partners can build more effective local/global collaborations to support women’s meaningful participation in peace negotiations, and supports the Kroc IPJ's mission to end cycles of violence.

About the Peace exChange
The Peace exChange, the Kroc IPJ's event series at the University of San Diego, will catalyze new and innovative thinking among all of us in San Diego on how we build inclusive, peaceful communities here and around the world. Each year the exChange will create a series of experiences that will leave you with new knowledge, new ways of thinking and maybe even new ideas about what you can do.

Be challenged. Be inspired. Be engaged. Be part of the Peace exChange.
