Come along to learn more about the history of anti-war, from anti-conscription in World War One, to civilian memories in World War Two, to international networks working to secure world peace in our region and around the world.

In this panel chaired by ABC Radio National’s Dr Kate Evans, three leading historians and a leading political scientist talk about their work on gender, war and memory, internationalism and pacifism, and the human cost of modern warfare today.
