Title: Getting Conflict Resolution Right in Africa: The Case of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)
Language: English

Abstract:
 This lecture will focus on conflict resolution in Africa and deals with the core question of why, despite various peace initiatives, African conflicts persist. It first raises ten lessons that we can learn from peace initiatives in Africa. It then goes on to discuss why violence continues in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), despite the presence of a large-scale peacekeeping force (MONUSCO), and despite massive foreign assistance.

- Transformational Leadership of Mahatma Gandhi and its Relevance in Contemporary World -
Guest speaker: Mrs. Shobhana Radhakrishna, Chief Functionary, Gandhian Forum for Ethical Corporate Governance.

 Gandhian approach of peace and non-violence has an enduring relevance in our society, particularly today, with full of tensions and disputes both domestically and internationally. The session will be a highly thought-provoking and insightful one. I expect your active participation.
