Institute mobilises public lecture series

IN an effort to address social justice issues faced by the region, the Institute for Mission and Research (IMR) at the Pacific Theological College (PTC) has mobilised its public lecture series in order to better address and create awareness.

Project officer for IMR Moira Visloni-Raduva said the series was co-ordinated by the University of the South Pacific(USP) and the Pacific Regional Seminary and after conducting research work, there was a need to have an avenue outside apart from formal spaces to be able to speak on these issues.

“We’ve mobilised to work on public lecture series with the fact that when we started doing research work, we initially found that there is a lot of social issues that need to be highlighted not just through the formalised conferences, training and workshops, but we can also look at outside events like the public lecture series,” Mrs Raduva said.

The public lecture series begins today at 7pm at the PTC which is located at 78 Vuya Rd in Veiuto, Suva.

The theme for the series is “Responding to Domestic Violence and the use of Ecumenical Voice to broken families.”
