Toda Peace Institute Holds Seminar on Global Challenges to Peace
On January 27, the Toda Peace Institute, an affiliate of the Soka Gakkai, held a seminar titled “Global Challenges to Peace in the 21st Century” in Tokyo, Japan. The event consisted of two panel discussions that were facilitated by Director of the Toda Peace Institute Kevin Clements. In the first, panelists discussed the role of social media in strengthening human solidarity, challenges to democracy and the relationship between climate change and conflicts in the Pacific. The second discussion focused on the impact of the crisis in Ukraine on East Asia and how, from the standpoints of international law and conflict resolution, the crisis could be resolved.
