Laureates of Peace Lecture: Protecting Human Rights in Conflict-Challenges

  • Date: Monday, February 29, 2016
  • Time: 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm
  • Location: McMaster University, Great Hall, University Club
  • Address: 1280 Main St West (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Teddy Saull
  • Email: saulles@mcmaster.ca
  • Phone: 905-525-9140x. 21556

Presented by Alfred Orono Orono, United Nations

The protection of fundamental freedoms and human rights has been a concern of the United Nations since its inception. That concern has increasingly been heightened over the past decades with several conflicts raging in various parts of the world resulting in mass displacement and unseen before exodus of populations under desperate conditions in search of better lives. Women and children have borne the brunt of these conflicts and the need to protect them from the destructive impacts of conflict has never before been more germane. The challenges are enormous. Issues of prevention, monitoring and reporting of abuses and violations, and addressing impunity are measures that are readily deployable but nevertheless are challenges in their own right. The United Nations has responded in various ways and made its intentions clear through numerous Security Council Resolutions and Presidential statements. It has also established peacekeeping operations mandated to monitor and report on violations of human rights, and has established international criminal tribunals to bring to account perpetrators of gross violations of human rights and international humanitarian law. This lectures seeks to engage the public on the discussion as to whether or not the efforts so far exerted by the international community in addressing these global problems is sufficient and if not what provide an opportunity for the public to explore more methods of addressing these issues.

This public lecture is offered as part of the Perspectives on Peace campaign.

The public is cordially invited to attend. There is no admission fee, but a free-will offering will be appreciated to cover expenses. A reception will follow.

Hope is the fundamental belief that we cling to in times of trauma and despair. In her book, Rev. Dr. McCarroll takes us on an engaging and optimistic exploration of hope in difficult times. Through detailed and poignant case studies, she introduces five facets of hope, followed by a discourse of the possibilities and limitations of each approach.

Rev. Dr. McCarroll is a certified teaching supervisor in clinical pastoral education, Canadian Association of Spiritual Care (CASC), and an ordained minister of the Presbyterian Church in Canada. She earned her PhD in theology through Toronto School of Theology, the University of St. Michael’s College and is currently an associate professor of pastoral theology, Knox College, Toronto. Born in Prince Rupert, B.C., she grew up in Hamilton before moving to Toronto where she currently resides.

Proverbs 24:34...”Know also that wisdom is like honey for you: if you find it there is a future for you, and your hope will not be cut off.”

Jane's Walk Hamilton 2016

  • Date: Saturday, May 07, 2016
  • Time: 9:00 am
  • Location: Hamilton
  • Address: Citywide (Google Maps)
  • Contact: Cassandra Roach or Elizabeth Seidl
  • Email: janeswalkhamilton@gmail.com
  • Phone: (289) 690-8252 (or text 905-599-6830)

Jane’s Walk honours the legacy of urbanist Jane Jacobs by inviting people to explore their neighbourhoods and meet their neighbours through free, guided walking tours. Jane’s Walks are held on the first weekend of May each year. Since its inception in 2006, Jane’s Walk has grown from one city to 75 cities in 15 countries worldwide.

Hamilton has been celebrating the Jane's Walk festival since 2013. Walk Leaders have taken us all over the city and beyond exploring our beauty, our challenges, and imagining our future. We have had thousands of Jane's Walkers in Hamilton over the years that have walked (and pedalled!) all over Hamilton.

Jane's Walk is called a "walking conversation" where we walk and talk about the neighbourhood. All Walkers are encouraged to join the conversation and voice their ideas and questions. This engagement is an important aspect of the event and the legacy of Jane Jacobs as it brings neighbours together through shared experiences and new knowledge. It is a celebration of our common space.

Jane's Walk Hamilton is looking for great Walk Leaders and Walk Assistants who can provide interesting facts and knowledge about a neighbourhood, street, or area in Hamilton as well as keep the "walking conversation" alive. We are looking for creative and diverse walks. Please join us!
