Social Time – 6:00PM – 6:30PM
Presentation – 6:30PM – 8:00PM
Presenter – Darren Kew
Perhaps it comes as no surprise that mediation is practiced worldwide but, even still, it is difficult to imagine what conflict resolution processes being applied overseas might actually look like. Darren Kew, professor at UMass Boston in the Department of Conflict Resolution, Human Security and Global Governance, will discuss the interfaith peacebuilding work of Nigeria’s famous “Pastor and Imam” duo and their Interfaith Mediation Centre (IMC), which has been engaged in Muslim-Christian dialogue efforts for the past 20 years, earning several nominations for the Nobel Peace Prize. Darren has spent the last 10 years working with IMC to expand their toolbox of conflict resolution approaches, to develop their evaluation capacity, and to assist in their mediation work. He will present some of the key findings of this work, including its implications for inter-religious and identity conflicts elsewhere. Join Darren at MWI for an interactive discussion followed by a Q&A session about his work overseas, as well as other international negotiation and mediation efforts he has studied and/or come in contact with.
