International criminal prosecution is seen by some as an essential tool to end impunity and reduce the extraordinary impact that war crimes and crimes against humanity have on civilians who are trapped in war.  Others criticize international prosecution as simply another form of Westerners attempting to impose their view of justice on a skeptical world while ignoring and silencing the voices of the victims and the communities from which they come. 

This event is part of the Intercollegiate Peace Fellowship Conference, a three day conference that explores the meaning, history, and practice of restorative justice.

This is a public event that is free to attend and open to all. This event is available with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation.

Fundraising Dinner - Celebrating 40 years of PACS

In 1977, an academic concentration in Peace and Conflict Studies was formally launched at University of Waterloo.  It was the first undergraduate peace studies program at a Canadian university. That same year, the student-run Peace Society was created at Conrad Grebel University College.

Join us as we celebrate 40 years of peace education.

Keynote speaker: Hon. Bob Rae

Proceeds benefit the MPACS Student Support Fund

Conrad Grebel University College’s Peace and Conflict Studies program (PACS) at the University of Waterloo was the first peace studies program in Canada, and has remained a leader in peace education for 40 years. With PACS’ innovative approach to learning, students can choose arts-based assignment options in many courses.

For Imogen Sloss, the desire for peace has always been an anchor in her life; growing up, it was a central value in her family and her community. Throughout high school, Imogen fostered this desire for peace through her passion for social justice, and after graduation, she continued to seek out opportunities to make a difference.

As she searched for the right undergraduate program to further her studies, her passion for peace and restorative justice drew her towards the Peace and Conflict Studies program at the University of Waterloo.
