On February 13 and 14, 2014, the World Peace Foundation hosted its annual student seminar competition on the topic of “Unlearning Violence: Evidence-based approaches to early childhood development, conflict, and peace. The conference drew together scholars and practitioners from the fields of education, neuroscience, aid and development, the humanitarian sector, and beyond. We will be rolling out updates and reflections about the conference on our blog over the coming weeks, but until then, we wanted to make available a compilation of tweets from the hashtag #UnlearningViolence. These tweets provide a glimpse into the panelists’ discussion, as well as capture audience questions and reaction. Thank you to all who attended and were part of this discussion, whether in person or online. We are looking forward to continuing this conversation!
