Guest Speaker Steve Killelea AM
Peace in the Age of Chaos: The Best Solution for a Sustainable Future
As a global philanthropist, Steve Killelea AM has laid the foundations to develop an entirely new understanding of peace. The Founder and Executive Chairman of the Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP) – a global think tank dedicated to analysing the intertwined relationships between business, peace, and economic development – Steve harbours over a decade’s worth of award-winning experience, delving into the crucial yet misunderstood concept of global peace.
Steve founded the Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP) in 2007, as an independent global research institute dedicated to analysing the intertwined relationships between business, peace, and economic development. Today, IEP’s leadership extends to calculating the economic cost of violence, measuring peace, risk analysis of a nation’s threat levels, and a new understanding of “Positive Peace”; and is used extensively by multilaterals, including the United Nations, World Bank, and OECD. He is also the founder of the Global Peace Index, the world’s leading measure of global peacefulness, ranking 163 countries and independent territories.
In his debut book, ‘Peace in the Age of Chaos: The Best Solution for a Sustainable Future’, Steve shares his personal journey to study, understand and measure peace – a peace that is positive, achievable and a tangible measure of human wellbeing and progress. He also unpacks how we can build more peaceful and resilient societies in an age of unprecedented global change, when humanity faces challenges unparalleled in its short history.
Join us for a conversation with Steve about his journey from leading IT entrepreneur to award-winning philanthropist and peacebuilder; why he believes peace is a perquisite for survival of society as we know it in the 21st century; and how Positive Peace provides an exciting new approach to solving some of the most intractable problems of our time.
