Rotary International and Harris Public Policy are proud to present the final event in a three part series of discussions focusing on peace and conflict.  Join us for "Sustaining the Peace" and hear from the next generation of peace builders who are working for communities around the world to ensure that today's challenges-from a record migrant population to increasing unrest with global institutions of governance-do not reverse the hard-won gains of the last century. Rotary Peace fellows and the first cohort of scholars from UChicago's Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflict will share their stories. This presentation will take place at Rotary International on April 10, 2018 from 6:00-7:30 PM. A reception will follow.
