Nairobi Peace Congress 2023

Identity, Belonging, and Migration

MBBI is thrilled to be hosting our 10th International Peace Congress in Nairobi, Kenya, and the first to be located in Africa, November 13-17, 2023. The theme is Identity, Belonging, and Migration, designed to address some of the significant impacts on individuals, families, communities, and countries around the globe as a result of climate change, social unrest, political shifts, and many other influences.

This will be a Congress for learning new things, broadening perspectives, and stepping into taking action as an international peacebuilder, negotiator, and supporter. Speakers will invite questions, considerations, and actions: How do we define identity? What does it mean to belong? How does migration impact social structures?

Join us in Nairobi, Kenya, for engaging speakers, transformative dialogues, and interactive sessions that will focus on charting the next decade of collaborative best practices in peacebuilding. To extend the week, we will have a peacebuilder certificate training before the Congress, a gala dinner to end the Congress, and an excursion following the Congress to explore the beauty and brilliance of Kenya. 

MBBI has always had strong connections with local peacebuilders in Kenya, and we are honored to have Hon. Lady Justice Joyce Aluoch as the Congress Chair. She is a former International Criminal Court (ICC) Judge and the Vice-Chair of MBBI’s Board of Directors
