Peace is the Holy Grail of our time. It is the most sought after state of being in society and yet seemingly the least attainable. Is it rareness that makes it so desirable, much like diamonds? Is it merely a question of supply and demand? Continuing with the analogy of the market – what are the fundamentals of peace and its future prospects? Would you invest in peace?

In 2010 Robert Massoud founded Beit Zatoun (“the house of olives”), which is located at 612 Markham St., in Toronto. It is an attractive meeting place hosting speakers, films, art exhibitions and concerts and also houses a Fair Trade shop.

This event is part of a weekly series of talks entitled: “Vital Discussions of Human Security”. Please see www.scienceforpeace.ca/events for details on all of our upcoming events. Please see our YouTube channel for videos from past events.
