Conflict, Change and Reconciliation
Learning from the Frontline - July 4-6, 2012.
Teachers: Patrick Magee, Jo Berry & Andrew Woodward
Many people today feel their voices are not heard and that they are powerless to affect what goes on around them. This sense of powerlessness can lead to apathy or explode into violence: frustrated people blame others for their lack of power, and see themselves as victims of circumstance. It is a phenomenon that we are witnessing all around the world, from shanty towns and war-torn states to inner city housing estates terrorised by gangs, and it is one of the most difficult problems facing society today.
This course is open for bookings.
