Topics covered included:
- Peacebuilding in an age of counter-terrorism;
- Struggling for peace and justice in Colombia;
- Experiences in building inter-faith bridges in The Philippines, with specific reference to Mindanao, and;
- The role of the Church in bringing peace to troubled areas of Africa.
