The Peace as a Global Language Committee is pleased to announce that this year's conference will be held at Toyo University on the theme: Advancing the Understanding and Promotion of Multicultural and Minority Communities. Much research shows the negative statistics of indigenous peoples, compared to the majority counterpart of the country or region, which includes lower life expectancy, higher unemployment, lower mental health and more substance abuse. Due to the effects of colonization, cultural genocide, and assimilation policies to this day, stereotypes and discrimination against minority peoples by the majority population are still prevalent, mainly attributed to the dominant society's lack of knowledge. However, indigenous peoples around the world have been working in various ways to strengthen their pride, identities, and resist assimilation policies. This is what the conference aims to highlight.
