The 2020 PCJ Student Conference serves as a platform for discussions on the modern challenges and opportunities for Indigenous communities in Canada.
The PCJ Student Conference is an annual student-organized event that brings together the PCJ community outside of the classroom for an opportunity to learn about and engage with an issue pertinent to discussions of peace, conflict and justice.
This year, the conference serves as a platform for Indigenous academics, practitioners, community leaders, Elders and traditional knowledge keepers to guide discussions on the modern challenges and opportunities for Indigenous communities in Canada. This theme serves to provide a domestic context to issues of peace, conflict and justice that are often overshadowed by international events.
