How Can Pluralism Strengthen Peace?

The Global Centre for Pluralism and the Aga Khan Development Network present an exclusive event at the Paris Peace Forum:

How Can Pluralism Strengthen Peace?
Lessons from the 2019 Global Pluralism Award winners

Many of the most intractable challenges we face today − from entrenched poverty to conflict-driven migration − stem from the exclusion and resentment of groups defined as “the other”.

Group-based grievances arising from inequality, exclusion and feelings of injustice increase the risk of instability and conflict. Pluralism is the choice to see diversity contribute to the common good. Making this choice is essential to building more secure, peaceful and resilient societies.

Meredith Preston McGhie, the Secretary General of the Global Centre for Pluralism, will be joined by two winners of the 2019 Global Pluralism Award to discuss how history education and community-based reconciliation can help strengthen pluralism, sustain peace and prevent conflict in diverse societies.
