Each year, the Borah Foundation sponsors the Borah symposium that strives to bring together world leaders, diplomats, scholars, activists and our local communities to discuss the causes of war and the conditions for peace.

The theme of the 2016 Borah Symposium is “Waging Peace.” The symposium will start on Monday, April 4 and end on Wednesday, April 6. The three day event will focus on humanitarian action in the 21st Century. At this year’s symposium, an Afghani SAR scholar, philosopher, writer, and human rights activist served as a panelist in a discussion of refugee issues.
