Women, Conflict & Peace Building – Jus Humanis Spring Forum

Poster Jus Humanis changed

Jus Humanis is delighted to invite you to this year’s Spring Forum!

The theme of this year’s Spring Forum is centered on Women, Conflict and Peace Building.

**Don’t miss our exciting opening event with Judge Aluoch from the International Criminal Court**

Women’s experiences during and after conflicts differ from men’s experiences in various ways. Our objective is therefore to explore the ways in which conflict exposes women to vulnerabilities; and thereafter, how women are valuable contributors to peace and rebuilding.

The purpose of the Forum week is primarily for education and awareness of topics within the ambit of our chosen theme, as they relate to the larger human rights picture.
Through our discussions and events, we aim to shed light on different perspectives arising out of cultural diversity, historical background and economic development.

We have an exciting combination of guest speakers and we indeed anticipate the fruitful sharing and discussion of issues and ideas throughout, both to benefit the listeners and invited speakers.

We look forward to seeing you there!
