In this session, Myuri will share her experiences in International Development and Education in Emergencies, and how notions of Peace Education were largely absent from the discussions. She will share some of her journey thus far, as someone who is still identifying how and where Peace Education fits into her work. This session will be an informal and interactive conversation, and an opportunity for collective reflection.
