Alwyn Thomson, a Northern Ireland native spoke on the topic "Making It Up as We Go Along - Conflict Resolution in Theory and Reality." Alwyn studied theology at Queens University and got his masters in Philosophy of Religion. After being involved in groups that were working toward resolving the conflict in Northern Ireland, he went back to get a second masters degree in Conflict Resolution. Alwyn spoke to a gathering of nearly 30 women. His talk and answer-packed Q&A time afterward provided a thought-provoking view into a world seemingly far from everyday Munich life...yet with lessons to be applied both to other political and personal challenges.
