Our Book Club

The IofC UK Book Club is for anyone and everyone, inside and outside the organisation. The more readers, the merrier in our eyes…

Starting from Tuesday 25th January, we will be holding a bi-monthly session via Zoom at 4:30pm – 5:30pm GMT. Our first book we will be reading together is ‘Manifesto for a Moral Revolution’, selected by El Laskar. It is a book that shares essential leadership practises for everyone who wants to do good in this world and is from the author of the New York Times bestseller The Blue Sweater and founder and CEO of Acumen.  

How to join…

In the first session we will be reading the introduction together to kick start and outlining the format. We look forward to seeing you there!

February Qualities & Strategies of Peacemakers – Online

Qualities & Strategies of Peacemakers (QSP-online) is a course of five modules, each based on a film about outstanding peacemakers.

The films show examples of reconciliation after conflict in a variety of contexts: inter-national, inter-religious, inter-ethnic and post-colonial. After an introduction and viewing of the film, participants take part in an interactive analysis facilitated by Dr Omnia Marzouk and/or Peter Riddell.

QSP is for anyone over the age of 18, in particular those who want to respond to past or present instability in their countries. It aims to enrich their understanding of peacemaking, and stimulate new ideas for ways forward.

QSP is free of charge, but voluntary donations to extend the programme are appreciated.
