Joins us for our special webinar on the importance of peace in today’s globalized world! On the 5th of May, we will have a conversation with some incredible guest speakers who have personally experienced the significance of the word ‘peace’ and who are working in the field of peace and justice.
What do we mean when we talk about peace? How can we achieve peace? Surprisingly or not, art is usually one of the answers.
Find more information about our guest speakers below.
We will kick off the event with an introduction to the topic of peace by our moderator Nora Stehouwer-van Iersel. Nora will talk about the importance of celebrating 75 years of freedom and peace which will be discussed in the context of the Balkan Wars and the conflict over the Palestinian territories. Both events serve as evidence for the human suffering of war and the need for peace.
Leila Prnjavorac is a freedom ambassador. She will tell us her personal story about the war in the Balkans, her flight to the Netherlands, and why the international tribunals are so important today.
Nenad Golcevski will tell us about her work at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and the functioning of the Mechanism. Nenad will tell us more about the creation of the court, what did it do – in short- and why is the voice of victims so important. Did the court manage to bring peace in the area? Join us to find out.
Ingrid Rollema works for the Hope Foundation and will tell us more about her project in the Palestinian areas.

Yesterday we were joined by two incredible guest speakers, Chale Guadamuz and Sophie Kwizera from The Hague Peace Project! As part of our 5th Meet and Greet event, Chale and Sophie talked about the importance of global action in peacebuilding and human rights defence. We had the opportunity to discuss the role of The Hague as a city of peace and justice, and its relation to Rotaract Club Scheveningen as a community of young people sharing a common vision for a peaceful world! We would like to thank everyone who joined us for an inspiring conversation!
