Indivisible: Global Leaders on Shared Security

15 March 2019, London

Editors Ru Freeman and Kerri Kennedy of the American Friends Service Committee will speak on their experiences compiling the book Indivisible. The talk will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.

Tickets are free. Refreshments provided.

Join us for an evening with some of the leading global peace and security experts as they explore how to create a safer world.

Indivisible is a new collection of leaders and activists writing about what they understand shared security to be.

More than forty global leaders and activists reflect on the state of the world, and the indivisibility of lasting peace and security.

From renowned peacemaker Archbishop Desmond Tutu to the twenty-eight year old UN Secretary General's Envoy for Youth, Jayathma Wickramanayake, and IMPAC Dublin Literary Award winner and creator of Narrative 4, Colum McCann, a world-renowned cast of writers disavow the notion of security as stemming from walls, x-ray machines, armed security forces and other militarized means of separating one population or group from another, refuse to identify particular groups or demographics as threats to other groups and redefine security as being inclusive and egalitarian.

Taken together these global citizens articulate a persuasive and powerful argument in favor of a new way of looking at a world where we re-frame security as a shared goal. This is an exceptional compilation of voices whose places of origin reflect the world of which they speak, and who, in chorus, become a testament to the fact that we can come together, no matter how far-flung we are, how solitary our endeavours, to shape our common future.

Editors Ru Freeman and Kerri Kennedy of the American Friends Service Committee will speak on their experiences compiling the book. The talk will be followed by a Q&A and book signing.
