Maintaining Peace Building in a Turbulent World

Presented by: Affinity, UNAA NSW, UNHCR & Sydney Peace Foundation 

About the Webinar: 

In today’s turbulent world, peace operations and peace building provide hope to areas emerging from conflict. One of the principles of UN peace operations is impartiality – a difficult concept to maintain in the volatile and uncertain environment of such situations. Australia has a proud record of involvement in over 60 peace operations since the UN was formed some 75 years ago. On the international day of peace, we consider how can Australia best contribute impartially to peace building operations regionally and globally.

UNHCR Multi-Country Representation Ms Louise Aubin and Council Member of SPF & USYD Senior Lecturer Dr Susan Banki will share their insights with National Affairs Editor Network TEN Hugh Riminton to discuss 'The Voice of Impartiality: Maintaining Peace in a Turbulent World'.
