TIP 2018, Caux Forum 2018

Violent extremism touches communities around the globe. There is a need for ways to reintegrate those who have committed violent extremist acts back into their communities. So Towards an Inclusive Peace (TIP) 2018, part of the Caux Forum, explored the power of restorative justice as a peacebuilding approach to transforming violent extremism. Nearly 150 people from over 40 countries took part from 11 to 15 July. In addition to those who had come specially for the event, the 2018 Caux Scholars acted as co-facilitators, helped with logistics and ensured the conference’s success.

Just Governance for Human Security 2018

A call to action has been sounded for global citizens to stand up and take responsibility in addressing the social and economic issues which threaten communities worldwide by working together to achieve the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Just Governance for Human Security (JGHS) has sought to respond to this call. For five days over 230 delegates from 75 nations gathered at the Caux Palace – Conference and Seminar Centre to explore their own role in meeting the SDGs.

Shalisa Hayes

Seven years ago, Shalisa Hayes’s son, Billy Ray, was shot in cross-fire while attending a party with his friends in Tacoma, a city south of Seattle, USA. Shalisa reacted to this tragedy by creating a community centre in her neighbourhood and an association called MOM (Mothers of Magnitude). She first came to Caux in 2017. This year she was back for the Just Governance conference.

In July 2018, for the second year running, the humanSecurityX certificate track programme ran in parallel to the forum on Just Governance for Human Security (JGHS). Its core aim: for participants to gain a deeper personal understanding of human security and its application – moving from talk to action.

Wounds inflicted upon generations past and present across the globe cannot be overlooked. They leave their scars and often remain unhealed, perpetuating conflict. More than ever, healing is needed to break cycles of violence and to build global change.  This was a central focus at the recent Just Governance for Human Security (JGHS) event of the Caux Forum.
