Rotary, University of Chicago to host peace series

Together with Rotary International, the University of Chicago's Harris School of Public Policy is hosting a series of panel discussions on one of Rotary's signature humanitarian causes: peace and conflict resolution.

The first of three installments of the Pathways to Peace series will focus on "Peace in the Age of Uncertainty" and the threat that urban violence poses to communities in the U.S. and globally.

Speakers at the 27 September event include: Christopher Blattman, professor of global conflict studies at the University of Chicago and The Pearson Institute; Anne Richard, former assistant secretary for population, refugees, and migration at the U.S. Department of State; epidemiologist Gary Slutkin, whose nonprofit Cure Violence applies public health models to reduce violence; and Brooke Stearns Lawson, Rotary Peace Fellow alumna and senior conflict adviser for organized crime with USAID's Africa bureau. Radio personality Jerome McDonnell, who hosts "Worldview" on Chicago's National Public Radio affiliate station, will moderate.

The free, public event will take place at the university's campus on the South Side of Chicago. Future discussions are set for February and April and will address themes such as peace in the age of big data and how to sustain lasting peace.

It would be nice to have either Webinars or webcasts of these series of panel discussions. Thanks
