Caroline has been one of a handful of MP’s at the forefront of the promotion of radical policy in Parliament and advocating a shift away from militarism.

Conscience is excited to have two of the UK’s most prolific and well-known peace campaigners joining forces for this initiative. Amongst topics of discussion will be the concept of a Minister for Peace, asking what a minister for peace might do, and how we might resolve international conflict without resorting to violence.

Would you back a minister for peace? Come along and discuss the arguments in favour of what constitutes a radical shift in modern political ethos.

The event will take place at:

House of Commons, Portcullis House, Boothroyd Room
