Description

 

 

Welcome to the Peace Society!

 

Established in October 2014 by a group of Peace Studies students who wanted to leave a legacy for years to come at their home away from home - the Univeristy of Bradford - the Peace Society was born.

 

The Peace Society brings passionate students alongside practitioners and academics in the field to create an environment that welcomes all students of all backgrounds irrespective of their differences. A space to integrate, enjoy culminating ideas for growth and furthering their autonomy together. As a departmental society we seek to empower both graduate and undergraduate students across all stages of their learning to become more engaged in their studies and with their fellow students at the University of Bradford through collaborations with other societies, clubs and groups.

 

Peace is a calling and it relies on the initiative of those willing to pursue it. As such, the Peace Society serves as a vehicle for students to further their education, familiarise themselves with one another and explore professional opportunities to work towards peace. The Peace Society invites students to pursue their interests through a wide range of supported programmes such as formal academic panels of experts in the field, roundtable forums and discussions, film screenings, practical workshops, networking events, social gatherings, protests on important issues and fundraising activities.

 

We even have our own football team who annually defend the University of Bradford (Peace Studies programme) against King's College London (MA War Studies programme) at the Tolstoy Cup! 

 

Throughout the years with full support of the Peace Division, the society has established excellent connections with the PSID administration, international organisations and local community groups. This year the Peace Society hope to organise events and activities in spite of COVID-19. Our current activity groups are Art and Peace, Clean our Streets, (Cultural exchange with Chinese Society), Debating, Environment and Climate Justice, Football Team, (Mindfulness and Inner Peace), Peace Education, (Refugee Action) and Sport Development and Peace.

 

Get actively involved and create opportunities together to inspire others and join us to become a member of the Peace Society! 

 

We can't wait to meet you!
