Dr. Óscar Arias Sánchez

Dr. Óscar Arias

Register today to hear Dr. Óscar Arias, former president of Costa Rica (1986-90 and 2006-10) and recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize during the Rotary Peace Symposium 4-5 June.

During his first term as president, Arias brokered a peace agreement that ended brutal civil wars in Central America. He received the Nobel Peace Prize in recognition of that work.

The symposium will also feature Steve Killelea, founder and executive chair of Integrated Research Ltd., The Charitable Foundation, and Institute for Economics and Peace. In 2007, Killelea founded the Institute for Economics and Peace, an international think tank dedicated to building a greater understanding of the interconnection between business, peace, and economics, with particular emphasis on the financial benefits of peace.

The symposium is your chance to join Peace Fellows, alumni, and Rotary members as they celebrate Rotary’s work in peace and conflict prevention and resolution. Attendees will have the chance to share information about their activities and hear about new tools and resources from representatives of leading organizations in the field of peace and conflict resolution. Learn more about the Peace Symposium and register today.
