Mario Novelli, Professor Of The Political Economy Of Education and Director of the Centre for International Education, is to give the keynote lecture at an important symposium on 'Higher Education and Peacebuilding', jointly led by UCL and the University of Nairobi.

His presentation - The Global Governance of Higher Education and Peacebuilding - explores the relationship between higher education and conflict, and will be delivered to an audience of academics and policymakers from Somalia and Kenya as well as international development partners. Both countries have suffered violent attacks on Higher Education institutions and are coming together to reflect on how to build more secure, equitable and sustainable institutions.

The symposium runs on 11/12 July and is based in Nairobi, Kenya.
