Resolving conflict, achieving peace in our world another major Rotary undertaking

Conflict and violence displace millions of people each year. 90 percent of those killed in conflicts are civilians and half of those are children. Often conflict starts and continues over long periods in competition for dwindling resources and as environmental changes force people to migrate.

Fergal McCarthy, the Peace Programs Manager at Rotary International in Chicago, spoke to Ladner Rotary members and District 5040 Peace leaders on May 5, 2020. Prior to his role at Rotary, Fergal worked at the Rand Corporation in California, the Irish Prime Minister’s Office in Dublin Ireland as well as the Irish Foreign Ministry.  He holds a BA in World Religions & Theology and an MPhil in International Peace Studies both from Trinity College Dublin, an MA in Comparative Ethnic Conflict Studies from Queens University Belfast, and an MSt in International Relations from the University of Cambridge.

Reducing male violence
One in three women in our world suffer from gender-based violence. During this COVID-19 pandemic there is estimated to be a 20 percent increase in reports of this form of violence. For every month our self isolation continues gender-based violence is expected to increase even more, by an estimated 15 million more cases. These are the chilling facts presented by Rotary Peace Fellow Will McInerney.
