International Conference, Tangaza College Nairobi

For the second consecutive year, Tangaza University College organized in Nairobi, on 23-24 May 2018, the “International Conference on Sustainable Peace and Security in Africa (TACSPA 2)”. This year’s theme focused on the contribution of religion to peacebuilding. Dozens of actors, practitioners and researchers from not only Kenya, but also Nigeria, Indonesia and Germany gathered in Nairobi to discuss the ideological, political and interreligious dimensions of a complex and issue affecting almost every corner of the world. Fr. Willybard Lagho, General Vicar of the Diocese of Mombasa and former student of PISAI, for example, spoke alongside Sheikh Ibrahim Sheekue about the lived experience in different places on the Kenyan coast. Another PISAI alumnus, Fr. Athanasius Barkindo, now director of the Kukah Center in Abuja, brought a West African point of view on the topic of decoding religious extremism. Rémi Caucanas, invited researcher at PISAI, presented the interfaith initiative of the Assisi meetings for peace, organized for the first time in 1986 by Pope John Paul II.
