Women, War & Peace Conference


The 2013 Women, War, and Peace Conference grew out of the partnership between VCU, the Richmond Sister Cities Commission, Virginia Friends of Mali, and the Richmond Peace Education Center. The 2013 Peace Conference has educational, cultural, and humanitarian goals. Those attending will learn about the issues that have led to conflicts and the opportunities to transform them through civil societies across West Africa, North Africa, and beyond. Hosted by Virginia Commonwealth University, the conference will address these conflicts and the gender issues that result. The program begins on Friday afternoon and continues through Saturday.

The conference will feature several films followed by short discussions.  Workshops targeting varied audiences will alternate with panels of scholars who address a variety of specific issues. All events, unless otherwise indicated, will take place in the Virginia Commonwealth University Student Commons, as detailed in the Program overview.
