Academi Heddwch: International Day of Peace

On International Day of Peace, Academi Heddwch have announced a number of development, including the news that one of our Fellows, Professor Colin McInnes FLSW, is their new Research Network Lead.

Thinking about the developments of the Academi Heddwch, Jill Evans, one of the founders of Academi Heddwch, said: 

“Academi Heddwch has gone from strength to strength in the past year. Its contribution is recognised, both academically and in terms of its role in society. The recognition of Academi Heddwch Cymru as a partner in the International Network of Peace Institutes has added to our status.

“Welsh Government and Heritage Lottery funding have enabled us to recruit an excellent staff team and we anticipate further achievements in the months ahead. We are proud of our success in facilitating the centenary celebrations of the unique Wales Women’s Peace Petition. Together with the research project already underway, Academi Heddwch can have a very positive role in creating Wales as a Nation of Peace.”
