At the same time, security concerns in the wake of terrorist attacks have led to a fortification of borders around the world. Moreover, fear of the ethnic, cultural or religious “other” has rapidly led to a rise in xenophobic sentiments.

These developments pose a particular challenge to the globally 65.3 million forcibly displaced people. The current refugee crisis poses a structural and increasingly pressing challenge for the world community. Liberal democracies will have to develop effective and morally valid responses given their political and legal commitment to protecting the right to political asylum and human rights. Similarly, liberal democracies are tested in their resolve to withstand ideologies that exclude the non-national “other” or depict migrants as incompatible with national identity. In the face of growing populism, xenophobia and violent extremism, it is important, now more than ever, to promote inclusion as a strategy to address complex global challenges and to emphasize the benefits we enjoy when we successfully leverage our diversity as a strength. The Victoria Forum will explore the benefits of diversity, openness and inclusiveness.

The panel conversation will focus on questions like:
– What are the main challenges we face, both in Canada and internationally, in striving to foster a more inclusive societies?
– Under what circumstances can diversity-based inclusion play a role in peace-building efforts?
– What are some of the key development outcomes of inclusion and how can these be leveraged as a positive force against the corrosive impact of exclusion on individuals and societies?” title=”UVic, University Center, Farquhar Auditorium”][header element_tag=”h2″ title=”Panelists:”][speakers filter_tag=”canada_presenter, canada_speaker” class=””][header element_tag=”h2″ subtitle_color=”#000000″ title=”Moderators:” subtitle=”The conversation will be guided by two very knowledgeable experts.

The panel focuses on exploring the role of private philanthropy and civil society in promoting socio-economic inclusion. Foundations are emerging as a potent force in development. Less well known is the work that philanthropy does to promote social inclusion within communities in Canada. Critics express concerns about the lack of transparency and accountability of private philanthropy. Proponents argue that private philanthropy offers creative and entrepreneurial solutions to persistent social issues that traditional institutions have failed to resolve. This panel will explore questions like:

What role should private philanthropy play in inclusive development, both domestically and internationally?
Does philanthropy have a distinct strategic role in sustainable development in Canada? How can philanthropy contribute to Canada’s pursuit of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s)?
What is private philanthropy’s role in strengthening community capacity for social innovation in the face of complex challenges including worsening economic inequalities, threats posed by climate change and the challenges of including and integrating immigrants and refugees, and reconciling with indigenous communities?
How does the current populist political environment affect the role of private philanthropy?
How does philanthropy contribute to new models of partnership or governance in cross-sectoral collaborations?” title=”UVic, University Center, Farquhar Auditorium”][vc_single_image image=”18782″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” css_animation=”bounceIn” link=”http://uvic.ca/” title=”Presented by”][header element_tag=”h2″ title=”Presenter and Panelists:”][speakers filter_tag=”partnership_presenter, partnership_speaker” class=””][header element_tag=”h2″ subtitle_color=”#000000″ title=”Moderator:” subtitle=”Hilary Pearson, President of Philanthropic Foundations Canada, will guide the discussion and set the stage for delegates to continue the conversation in the think tank sessions.”][speakers filter_tag=”partnership_moderator” class=””][vc_single_image image=”18781″ img_size=”150×150″ alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_border” onclick=”custom_link” img_link_target=”_blank” css_animation=”bounceIn” link=”http://localhost/vf/themes/#1494805173735-4b682f56-7a49″][/vc_tta_section][vc_tta_section title=”CLIMATE JUSTICE” tab_id=”climate-justice”][vc_custom_heading text=”DEFINING CLIMATE JUSTICE” font_container=”tag:h2|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ use_theme_fonts=”yes”][header element_tag=”h2″ color=”#274df7″ subtitle_color=”#000000″ title=”Saturday, November 18, 2017 @ 3:00 PM”][header element_tag=”h4″ color=”#274df7″ subtitle_color=”#000000″ subtitle=”As the impacts of climate change accelerate, people of all current socio-economic conditions will feel the effects.This panel will look at three aspects of “climate justice”, posed through questions that will explore solutions to how we can and should begin to consider dealing with thechallenges ahead.
