Pearson Institute Conferences

In addition to our recurring event series, The Pearson Institute hosts conferences designed to unite individuals from the academic, practitioner, and policymaking communities to address critical issues of global conflict.

Moving On From Conflict

On May 16, The Pearson Institute for the Study and Resolution of Global Conflicts and The Senator George J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice at Queen’s University Belfast will host a workshop entitled Moving On From Conflict.

Reflecting on the role of lawyers in conflict and transition, as well as the impact of music and storytelling in conflict and post-conflict communities, this workshop will focus on how societies move forward once conflict has been resolved.
