The URI Accelerate Peace conference took place on June 26 and 27, 2019 at the Hoover Institution on the Stanford University campus in California, USA. It brought together more than 400 peacebuilders from around the world to discuss challenges to peace, both in their local communities and on an international level, and also to discuss action-oriented solutions to benefit all of humanity.
