Grand Rapids Community College and its Irish Studies Program are pleased to announce our first Peace and Reconciliation Conference, May 12-13, 2009.
John Hume, Nobel Peace Prize laureate and an architect of the current peace process in Northern Ireland, will deliver the keynote address on May 12. Other conference speakers will share their knowledge and firsthand experiences with Northern Ireland's civil rights movement, the Troubles, community reconciliation efforts, and the struggle to build a truly sustainable peace.
This conference is a special opportunity for the wider community to learn from Ireland's experiences with conflict and reconciliation. We hope you will join us. Please visit the conference website (www.grcc.edu/peace) for additional information and the conference registration form (due by May 4).
