Peacebuild and York/IRIS had a phenomenal PCIA event in Toronto on May 22-24, 2013.
We averaged 20 people daily and skyped in a colleague from DC, who introduced and showed a PCIA/Peace Parks film with discussion. We had sessions on theory, bridging the theory-practice nexus, and reflexive praxis. We strategised the future along a theory, methodology/tools, and community of practice tripartite axis. In the process, we learned about PCIA in Pakistan, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, Somalia, Kenya, Israel, Palestine, and elsewhere. Finally, we developed new friendships and cultivated solidarities that promise to evolve.
