Qualities & Strategies of Peacemakers

An introduction to Peacemaking in Five Films

Monday, 1. November 2021 - 16:45 to Friday, 5. November 2021 - 18:45


Monday 1 - Friday 5 November 2021 at 16:45 for 17:00 BST/GMT+1 (North and Latin America, Europe, Africa and Middle East, West and South Asia)


Qualities & Strategies of Peacemakers (QSP-online) is a course of five modules, each based on a film about outstanding peacemakers.

The films show examples of reconciliation after conflict in a variety of contexts: inter-national, inter-religious, inter-ethnic and post-colonial. After an introduction and viewing of the film, participants take part in an interactive analysis facilitated by Dr Omnia Marzouk and/or Peter Riddell.

QSP is for anyone over the age of 18, in particular those who want to respond to past or present instability in their countries. It aims to enrich their understanding of peacemaking, and stimulate new ideas for ways forward.

QSP is free of charge, but voluntary donations to extend the programme are appreciated.
