Welcome to A Struggle For Peace

A conference about the boundaries of knowledge, identity, and power

On the 7th of April the Dutch United Nations Student Association Utrecht (DUNSA or SIB-Utrecht) organizes the fourth edition of the conference ‘A Struggle for Peace’. Like previous editions this conference is focused on current challenges in the world. The theme concerns ‘boundaries’: boundaries of knowledge, identity and power, because these aspects constitute the building blocks of both conflict and peace processes. With a framework of boundaries we hope to provide insights and create awareness about current conflict situations, peace and the conditions for this, through a versatility of nuanced perspectives. The conference has a broad variety of program parts, speakers and subjects. Do you want to read further about the boundaries of knowledge, identity and power?
