Details

The possibility of peace. It's what we seek in ourselves, for others and in the world. It's a wonderful dream everyone eagerly envisions, like we do the ending of a good book or a suspenseful movie. Trouble is, the peace process is more often complex, messy, stubborn, time-consuming, delayed and not as easy as simply saying, "stop what you're doing and be peaceful." Even in countries where a peace accord is reached, the change taking place can be challenging, laboring and still met with resistance. It takes time for something new to sink in. Change is hard. Jubilation is not guaranteed.

That’s why peacebuilding — the true, ongoing, passionate work of those who desire peace — is so varied. The way to peace is not a one-way street; to work toward peace means searching multiple pathways. It's a change in thought, in action and its delivery requires patience, consistency, strength and a relentless passion to see it through the road blocks known and unknown.

On Thursday, March 14, 6 p.m., in the Kroc School’s Institute for Peace and Justice Theatre, six University of San Diego thought leaders will present at the Peace Innovators event, and Kroc School Dean Patricia Márquez will further enhance the experience at the master of ceremonies. The event is free and open to the public —RSVP now.

Creating a better world requires new ways to tackle old challenges. The six — School of Business Associate Professor Dr. Priya Kannan-Narasimhan, Kroc School Professor of Practice Dr. Michael Fryer, Kroc IPJ Executive Director and Kroc School Professor of Practice Dr. Andrew Blum, Assistant Professor of Integrated Engineering’s Dr. Gordon Hoople and the co-presenting team of Assistant Sociology Professor Dr. Greg Prieto and USD Mulvaney Center’s Maria Silva, MA — will share stories on the impact they've seen, insight they've gleaned and ideas they have to bring us closer to solving problems. Their unique perspectives can help further our understanding of peace today and in the future.

This event is open to the public
