Our Activities

As the recent board for the year 2022-2023, we have been working on offering fun social activities, exchanges of knowledge and a variety of engaging events. You can find out more about our ongoing and upcoming events by following our Facebook page and Instagram account.

The main bulk of activities held and hosted by Pax et Bellum comes from the Head of Activities, who is responsible for organising both academic and social events. We strive to bring interesting, fun and informative learning opportunities to our members. Lectures, workshops, or hangouts during the evening are all part of our initiative to offer interaction not only amongst current master’s students but also students from other disciplines.

If you have an event in mind or a topic you would like for us to discuss, please contact the Head of Activities. Please note, however, that you have to be a member of Pax et Bellum to get involved in our working groups.

Recent activities

Pax Baraza
Baraza is Swahili and means meeting or palaver and this is what “Pax Baraza” is supposed to be, an opportunity to meet up and talk about important topics. One person will prepare a small input on the topic that was chosen for the event. After that, all attendees can participate in the discussion.

What is a life of academia but not in need of occasions of glamour and vanities? Because of this, Pax et Bellum has been involved in making two gasques happen every year.

Theme Week
Each year we organise a theme week, which includes a-week-long series of events on a selected theme.

Pub et Bellum
Pub nights are a great chance to grab a drink with friends. As soon as the situation allows, we will organize pub nights again.

Past activities

Pax Talks
Once a month (usually), we used to set up little talks with people who had something interesting to share about peace and conflict. Think TED Talk, but locally.

Excursions and Trips
We used to organize excursions and trips as well. These will hopefully be back on track, as soon as the pandemic situation allows.

Simulation Activities
Once every year, we used to organize a roleplay-ish Crisis Simulation.

Career Day
Career Day is a one-day online fair where students of politics, social science and more get to meet employers from the public and private sectors, academia, and civil society.
