Nobel Prize winners and former heads of state gathered in Coventry for the third RISING Global Peace Forum.
Former President of Liberia Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and former Irish Prime Minister John Bruton shared their insights into resolving conflict and building sustainable peace with more than 200 delegates from around the world.
Other peacebuilders and policymakers to address the two-day event included human rights activist Tawakkol Karman, who shared the Nobel Peace Prize in 2011 with President Sirleaf.
Advent Communications was on hand to help produce a Guardian UK podcast and a BBC Radio 4 interview, and secured a range of regional and national media coverage in the build up to and during the event.
RISING brings international peacebuilders, policymakers and academics from around the world to Coventry, the UK’s only City of Peace and Reconciliation. RISING is a partnership between Coventry Cathedral, Coventry City Council and Coventry University, represented by the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations.
