National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies award for Quakers
In October 2020, the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies at Otago University made a unique award to Quakers in Aotearoa New Zealand for their contribution to peacebuilding activities. As the Centre is part of Otago University, Dunedin Quakers had the honour and pleasure of being invited to a special morning tea with staff and students of the Centre to receive the certificate on behalf of Quakers nationally.
Pictured are the Centre Director, Richard Jackson, with Meghan Stewart-Ward (left) and Stephanie du Fresne (right). Meghan completed a Masters degree at the Centre and has had an internship at the Quaker United Nations Office. Stephanie is Clerk of Quaker Peace and Service Aotearoa New Zealand.
The certificate is now displayed at the Quaker Settlement in Whanganui.
