The Future of Peacebuilding

Just some encouragement to look at some of the sessions from the November Building Sustainable Peace conference at the Kroc Institute. I was particularly struck by Gearoid Millar and Lisa Schirch’s comments on the state of the discipline, and its preparedness (or not) for the challenges of the decades ahead.

As ever, I was also struck by John Paul Lederach’s concluding comments, about the scale of the challenges facing us in the next decades, and about our inability to imagine ourselves as a global community in a way that would help us to tackle these challenges. I was also struck by his sense of where we need to look for the creativity and resilience we need.
