Power, Discrimination & Conflict
Back To Programmes List
Despite our best efforts at union, we live in a world of division. A world where competing political rhetoric causes anger and conflict; where ideological differences lead to privilege, poverty, and discriminative stereotypes, and where mass media is powered by sensationalism and severance to sell. A world of power, discrimination, and conflict. But as human beings, through our very nature of being, we have more that brings us together than sets us apart.

Despite our best efforts at union, we live in a world of division. A world where competing political rhetoric causes anger and conflict; where ideological differences lead to privilege, poverty, and discriminative stereotypes, and where mass media is powered by sensationalism and severance to sell. A world of power, discrimination, and conflict. But as human beings, through our very nature of being, we have more that brings us together than sets us apart.



This programme is open to governments, not for profit organisations, academic institutions, and students. We welcome anyone with an interest in equality and fighting discrimination, conflict resolution, domestic violence prevention, human rights, safeguarding vulnerable populations, and anyone broadly interested in matters of power, discrimination and conflict.
Reach out to us if you want to start a discussion!

Our previous projects have included Gender equality in the workplace, in education and in healthcare; The Impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations; Domestic Violence Prevention; Loneliness within elderly populations; International Conflict Resolution; Resilience and Leadership and many more.

COVID IMPACT

The impact of COVID-19 is far-reaching, with millions sadly losing their lives, health systems under severe strain, and threats of economic collapse on the horizon. The World Bank estimated that before COVID, 9.2% of the population (689 million) lived in extreme poverty. However, it is predicted that this number will rise by an astonishing 150 million by 2021; with “eight out of 10 of the ‘new poor’ coming from middle income countries.”
