Globalising Nonviolence

War Resisters' International Conference

Schloss Eringerfeld

Paderborn, Germany

23-27 July 2006

The War Resisters' International conference "Globalising Nonviolence" will be a great opportunity to meet activists from all over the world, to get to know what makes them tick, and to see how you can help each other make another world possible.

Around the world, a movement of movements is converging. This movement seeks to counterpose the perspective and values of people's power for those of global financial institutions, transnational corporations or governments. This is a movement of globalisation from below.

WRI believes that nonviolence has a major role to play in this globalisation from below. Hence the theme of our upcoming international conference - Globalising Nonviolence.

Conference fees

Participation costs 200 (registration, accommodation and meals) for individual participants, and 250 for representatives of organisations. There are cheaper options (bring your own tent/caravan) available, if you cannot afford the full fee.
