Peace Intelligence: A Call to Care
People are different. Cultures are different. No two people are the same and no two conflicts are the same. How are peace practitioners to remain relevant and ‘do no harm’ if this is always going to be the case? Most organisations turn to cultural competency training to remain relevant in our ever-increasingly connected world. But is this enough?
In our upcoming webinar, Elaine Pratley, Rotary Peace Fellow and Cultural Intelligence trainer will draw on her insights on ‘cultural intelligence’ to explore how we might cultivate a ‘peace intelligence’ that is responsive enough to each new context.
For Elaine, peace intelligence, like cultural intelligence, ultimately comes from a posture of care that sees the human in others.
Drawing on her joys and cultural faux pas while living and working in Malaysia, Switzerland, China, New Zealand, Australia, Kazakhstan, India and Thailand, this session is a call for peace practitioners to be gracious with others, and also themselves, as we live in a world full of unknowns.
“Like cultural intelligence, peace intelligence is not a matter of being ‘politically correct’ or international travel. It comes from a posture of care.” Elaine Pratley
