YPI hosted its High School Event yesterday at the International School in The Hague. It was an amazing day in which students learned about the complexity of conflicts. The day started off with an interesting lecture by Sylva van Rosse of the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy. After the lecture, it was time for the students to get in action. The first workshop was given by André Krouwel and Daan Aalders of the Election Compass (KiesKompas). Within this workshop, students had to take a stand towards different propositions and explain why they chose this position. In the second workshop, Paul Meerts – who worked for and is still involved with the Clingendael Institute – showed the students, on the basis of an interesting case study, that it is extremely difficult to form an opinion about ‘good’ and ‘evil’ since these concepts differ across the world.

We would like to thank all the speakers for their valuable lecture/workshop and principal Rick van Vliet for having us at his beautiful school.
