Among those confirmed or expected to speak are Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, winner of the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize for ending decades of civil war in Colombia; President Joaquim Chissano of Mozambique, who applied innovative GUSP-inspired programs to end that nation's civil war; Ecuadorian General José Villamil, who applied similar peace-creating methods to end the longstanding war between Ecuador and Peru; Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, former chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize; and renowned Ukrainian leaders General Vasyl Krutov, former chief of the Ukraine Anti-Terrorism Center, and Academician Dr. Sergiy Maksymenko, Ukraine's most distinguished research scientist.
The Conference will take place in Kiev on Wednesday–Thursday, June 14th–15th.
