Join and create
your own PEACE community
Inflammatory rhetoric and the escalation of several territorial disputes in the region emphasize the need to maintain space for dialogue and build trust and confidence between all parties. In order to move towards realising regional peace and stability, it is important to revitalize dialogue processes on wide-ranging issues, based on mutual trust and confidence among all parties. Since 2015 GPPAC launched the Ulaanbaatar Process, which aims to create peace and stability in the region through the promotion of civil society dialogue.
Following two successful rounds of meetings in 2015 and 2016, a community is now being launched to share information and resources in relation to the Ulaanbaatar Process. This community gathers key information regarding participants, outcomes and future plans of the dialogue.
GPPAC and WFM-IGP are relaunching a new and improved version of the betterpeace.org website that covers the work of the UN's Peacebuilding Commission (PBC). Check out the website for an introduction to the work of the PBC on peacebuilding and conflict prevention in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, the Central African Republic and beyond and background information on the UN's peacebuilding architecture. This website is hosted and created through the Peace Portal.
GPPAC and Utrecht University will use this occasion to reflect on the challenges and potential pathways to inclusive conflict prevention with researchers, international civil society practitioners and policy makers. The panel discussion will draw on practical experiences, knowledge and lessons learned from the speakers, which will draw partially on the findings from the WOSCAP project.

Over the past 16 years, the United States of America and its allies have spent tremendous amount of resources both in blood and treasure to stabilize and rebuild Afghanistan. Both of the past two administrations including the Trump one have not historically understood Afghanistan and the region around it. All of these administrations were either too confident or optimistic, expecting a quick fix for and an early exit from Afghanistan. While no fix has proven to be effective, Afghanistan continuous to be America's endless and most expensive war.
