Maggie O'Neill wins the NOCIES’s Outstanding Thesis Award!

Maggie O’Neill was awarded the NOCIES’s Outstanding Thesis Award at the NOCIES and GlobalCIE Forum Conference held at Stockholm University. Her thesis is titled: Problematizing the Peace Discourse in World’s Largest Lesson: A Critical Exploration of Knowledge Production through Discussions of Violence.

In her acceptance speech, she states:

“In my thesis I argue that the peace discourses created in World’s Largest Lesson creates a concept of peace that is dehistoricized, depoliticized and decontextualized. It creates a version of peace that privileges individuals and maintains the status quo.”
