5th congress Mukwege International Chair – Ending gender based violence: Women’s empowerment and sustainable development

December 3 - December 6

Dr. Denis Mukwege, 2018 Nobel Peace Prize winner, founder and president of the Panzi Foundation in the Democratic Republic of Congo received an honorary doctorate from the University of Montreal (UdeM) in 2019. Since then, UdeM has integrated the Mukwege International Research Chair, which was initiated by Professor Emeritus (University of Liège) Véronique De Keyser, Honorary deputy of the European Parliament, following Dr. Denis Mukwege’s initial contacts in November 2013 with the aim of setting up cooperation programs for the follow-up of survivors of sexual violence.

The 5th Congress of the Mukwege International Chair (5CCIM) will be held for the first time in North America, from December 3 to 6, 2024 at the Palais des congrès in Montreal.
