INCORE cordially invite you to a Seminar hosted by the John Hume and Thomas P. O'Neill Chair in Peace, Professor Brandon Hamber.

Date: 26 September 2016
Time: 1pm to 2:30pm
Venue: Ulster University, Belfast Campus, York Street, BA-03-019

John Caulker founded and has led the implementation of the Fambul Tok program since its inception in 2007, initially through his position as the founding Executive Director of Sierra Leonean human rights NGO, Forum of Conscience. As Executive Director of Forum of Conscience, Mr. Caulker strove to prevent recurring violence by connecting the root causes of Sierra Leone's brutal conflict to the need for rural community participation in the national decision making process and acknowledgement of wrong doing to victims through the reparations program.As the national chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Working Group, Mr. Caulker pressured the government of Sierra Leone to implement the recommendations of the TRC's 2004 report.

During the outbreak of Ebola Mr. Caulker along side his colleagues advocated for the involvement of community members in the fight against Ebola, as they are best place to help break the circle of the virus within their communities. Presently, he is leading a national campaign for an inclusive community center post Ebola recovery program drawing on lessons learnt during the post war reconstruction and recovery process. Mr. Caulker was a Human Rights Fellow at Columbia University's (New York) Center for the Study of Human Rights in 2007.
