IPC seeks to cultivate and sustain positive relationships at a local level across the region and across traditional sectarian and new social divides.The conference, entitled 'Prejudice & Pride' explored the role of prejudice and its impact on peace-building in Northern Ireland as well as in other regions affected by conflict. The event gathered a wide range of speakers from across Ireland as well as some international speakers who gave an overview of peace-building efforts and challenges in other parts of the world. International speakers included former combatants.
