Thank you for joining War Resisters International and the New Tactics community for an online conversation on tactics for combating the militarisation of education, public spaces, vulnerable communities, entertainment and culture, from June 10 to 14, 2013.
Summary coming soon
Governments and other military actors around the world target youth and other vulnerable communities for military recruitment and service. Simultaneously, the militarisation of public spheres such as space and culture promote the acceptance of the prioritising of military capability and approaches. In response, human rights organizations have developed innovative ways of combating increasing militarisation. This conversation is an opportunity for teachers, students, lawyers, peace activists and practitioners from around the world to share their experiences and challenges in combating the culture of militarism in their communities.
We’re happy that this event coincides with the International Day of Action for Military-Free Education and Research on June 14.
