Throughout this week the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence's has hosted its first bi-annual International Peace and War Summit. The purpose of the summit was to bring together military experts and academic scholars from across many fields to discuss the consequences of war in the 21st century and its byproducts. "We wanted to host an event for the campus and wider community that brings together military ethicists and peace activists for open dialogue," said Shannon French, director of the Inamori Center.

Topics such as post-traumatic stress disorder, child soldiers, corporate involvement in warfare, the role of non-military personnel in torture, and newly developed efforts towards peace were openly discussed in several panels. The panelists provided many different perspectives, as 15 countries across Europe, Asia, African, Australia, and North and South America were represented. Besides panel discussions, the summit also included of a documentary screening, a keynote presentation, art exhibits, and poetry reading. There are still events occurring today and tomorrow. Today at 7 p.m at Amasa Stone Chapel there will be an intergenerational choir consisting of CWRU faculty, community members, and students from local schools. The price of admission is $6.60. The rest of the events are free and open to students, faculty, and staff.
