22 September | Imperial War Museum

Zahra and Catriona in the huge atrium of the Imperial War Museum.

Zahra Imame of the Christian Muslim Forum, Sayed Ali Abbas Razawi of Majlis-e-Ulama Europe and Catriona Robertson (LBFN) took part in the Imperial War Museum‘s events to mark the UN International Day of Peace on Saturday 22nd September.

The supporting film for the London Peace Network’s activities was shown and we took part in a discussion later in the day, Starting in Neutral: What does neutrality matter in 21st century humanitarian conflict response?   

This brought together speakers from Conciliation Resources, Médecins Sans Frontières,  the International Committee of the Red Cross and International Alert in a discussion covering the meaning, problems and perceptions around neutrality in conflict and post-conflict zones.

The Museum is interested in including alternative narratives and stories about its displays, particularly those relating to recent armed conflict, and we hope to be working with them on this in the future.
