The Elders will discuss a range of issues – from conflict and sectarianism to good governance and women’s role in peacebuilding – at a debate this week in Oxford, UK. Find out how you can follow the event and send in your questions for the Elders.

How can we put aside our prejudices and improve inter-cultural understanding? How should we speak truth to power in the Middle East? What would peacebuilding look like if women took their place at the negotiating table? How do equality, accountability and good governance create the conditions for peaceful and stable societies?

The Elders will be discussing these questions and more at a panel discussion this week, co-hosted by the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies.

What: a discussion on conflict, dialogue and peace
When: 5pm BST, Thursday 29 May 2014
Where: the Sheldonian Theatre, Oxford, UK
Who: Kofi Annan, Jimmy Carter, Hina Jilani and Mary Robinson, moderated by Dr Farhan Nizami

The event will be live-streamed here from 4pm GMT – and you can join the conversation on Twitter at #EldersOxf.
