Our Next Peace Book Club

Tuesday 25 June 2024, 1 – 2pm

Prisoners of Geography by Tim Marshall

For our next Women’s Leadership Programme Peace Book Club, our members have chosen Tim Marshall’s best-seller ‘Prisoners of Geography’. We look forward to this discussion on the impact of geography on world events and world history, and how decisions, strengths and vulnerabilities of countries from China to the USA, Latin America to the Arctic are impacted by their physical characteristics.

Coming up later in the summer

Save the date 1pm, Tuesday 30 July when we will be discussing ‘The Myth of Normal’ by Gabor Maté.

Glencree All-Island Women's Peacebuilding Network (2)

In early 2023, Glencree Women’s Leadership Programme launched the ‘Peace Book Club’ for members of the Glencree All-island Women’s Peacebuilding Network and participants engaged in the programme.

As part of its work in supporting and empowering women peacebuilders to actively engage in dialogue, peacebuilding and political processes that promote peace, the Peace Book Club provides space for collective learning, reflection and conversation amongst participants.

Peace Book Club takes place online on the last Tuesday of every month at 1pm. Advance registration is essential. If you would like to join our Book Club or for more information about the Glencree All-Island Women’s Peacebuilding Network, please email: amina.moustafa@glencree.ie.

About the Glencree Women’s Peacebuilding Programme

This event is an initiative of the Glencree Women’s Leadership Programme. This programme aims to support and empower women on the island of Ireland who have experience of political conflict/violence to become active leaders in the political processes that promote peacebuilding.

Central to our work in this area is the Glencree All-Island Women’s Peacebuilding Network for women who have been impacted by political conflict or violence to connect in a safe-space. Our network is open to women across generations, communities, cultures and ethnicities who would like to build relationships and share their experiences in peacebuilding and conflict transformation with other women in this space. Network members can also take part in our events and activities designed to support women in having their voices heard in policy conversations and peacebuilding processes relevant to women.
