Peace Corner Live: Locals at the Forefront of Peace
We know the same-old story. A violent conflict breaks out and international interveners come rushing to support peace in the country. But oftentimes, this leads to a short term ‘fix’ and even more chaos returns with monstrous damage to the people. What we often tend to forget, is that locals know best. Local peacebuilders and ordinary citizens know best what the root causes and solutions are to the violence that is affecting them. But why then are they sporadically pushed aside in offering solutions? And why do youth and women have to try so hard to reach the decision-making level in spite of seemingly global consensus on the importance of their voices?
The Peace Corner podcast is back with an all-new season! This time around, we are digging deep to break the sticky top-down narrative of peacebuilding. The young people at UNOY, +Peace, CSPPS and GPPAC are joining hands once again to bring to you the voices, grassroots initiatives and groundbreaking concepts that matter to build a better world of tomorrow.
And there is no better way to start our journey than to launch our season live with award-winning peacebuilding author and researcher Séverine Auteserre and young changemaker Shadi Rouhshahbaz. Make sure to tune in live and subscribe!
