Cultural Foundations for Peace
While it is true that governments negotiate peace treaties and maintain balances of power relating to issues of war and peace, peacebuilding may also result from cultural foundations, which provide the opportunity to draw people together. Indeed, some peace scholars have argued long-standing peace comes not from dramatic political moments, but from incremental changes of everyday practices leading to more peaceable interchanges among people of different nationalities, races, ethnic groups, genders, religions, and other characterizations that otherwise might divide people from one another. This series presents three films that demonstrate how music, sports, business, religion, law, and film itself can provide foundations for peace, thereby making governments’ work to find peaceful solutions to issues more possible and creating a foundation for constructive relationships. Post-film discussions will follow all screenings. This partnership is supported through IU Cinema’s Creative Collaborations program.
This film series connects to other activities within Indiana University, such as the May 2018 Music, Business, and Peace Summit and the ongoing activities of the Kelley School’s International Institute of Business. Academic papers arising out of these activities will be published by the Indiana Law Journal at the Maurer School of Law.
This series is sponsored by the Department of Business Law and Ethics, Institute for Korean Studies, and IU Cinema.
