IPRA – Making Peace in Trinidad

May 27, 2023
Splabman

The International Peace Research Association gathered May 17-21, 2023, in Port of Spain, Trinidad for their 2023 conference. I attended and was in the company of  some of the world’s most brilliant scholars of peace. To be in this multi-racial country, to be welcomed with great warmth by the locals and to be treated to a reiki session were all part of the amazing experience. That my mother was born in the Caribbean (Cuba) may also have been a factor in the ease I felt being in that part of the world. Hearing so many English accents was also wonderful, as was the local cuisine, including “Doubles.”

Once the conference ended, the Co-Secretary General of IPRA, Matt Meyer, sat down with me to answer a few questions about IPRA and the conference. I plan to attend the 2025 IPRA conference and perhaps present on Poetry Postcards as Peace Project. Enjoy!
