Register for the THE University Impact Forum: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions


Times Higher Education is set to host a forum focusing on how universities can help create peaceful, just and inclusive societies.

The THE University Impact Forum: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions will take place in partnership with the University of Deusto in Bilbao, Spain on 20 and 21 February 2020.

It is the first of several forums that THE will be hosting next year on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Last year, THE launched the inaugural University Impact Rankings, which assess global universities’ performance against the SDGs.

This event, focused on SDG 16 (peace, justice and strong institutions), will analyse the role that universities can and should play in support of peace, justice and human rights, taking into account their policies, their relationship with public entities and their partnerships with other institutions.

Jennifer Curtin, director of the Public Policy Institute at the University of Auckland, and Carla Koppell, distinguished fellow at the Georgetown Institute for Women, Peace and Security, will debate how teaching and research can contribute to SDG 16.

Meanwhile, Federica D’Alessandra, executive director of the Oxford Programme on International Peace and Security at the University of Oxford, and Ejup Ganić, founder and chancellor of Sarajevo School of Science and Technology and former president of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina, will discuss the role of public policies.

Hind Kabawat, director of interfaith peacebuilding at George Mason University, and Dan Plesch, director of the Centre for International Studies and Diplomacy at SOAS University of London, will also speak at the forum.

THE forum focused on SDG 3 (health and well-being) will take place in Dublin, Ireland in July.
