Eric Fawcett Memorial Forum

In memory of Eric Fawcett, co-founder of Science for Peace together with Anatol Rapoport, we host a public forum every year on subjects important to civil society and with the Government of Canada. This forum includes presentation of papers by scholars, discussions, and an interface with government officials and policy makers.
