Dear Hannes,
I see you from Chiara's list of friends. I am privileged to be able to communicate with you through this network. I see from your profile that you have been doing important works towards conflict resolution, peacebuilding and development in many situations and geographical areas. I think that I have a lot to learn from your insights and learning. Do you see any ethnic dimension in the Nepal situation or take into account ethnic dimension so that ethnic conflict does not occur in Nepal?

I look forward to hearing from you positively.

Warm regards,

Dear Hannes,
Thank you for contacting me. Yes I am a friend of Lisa's, but perhaps you mistake me for someone else as I do not know Adriaan Verheul. I am currently here on a similar contract as Lisa, same sending organisation through CPS, although I work with a different local partner, COCAP.
I do agree that the economic issue will come up, like many others after the CA election results.

Hi Hannes!
Thanks for the invite, and as I am close to Nepal I may just wind up in Kathmandu sometime soon. How's the work going there? I am currently working for UNDP, and so you can no doubt guess the state of my work...

Keep in touch, when you have the time...

Thank you for answering. I think the U.N. is at a point where they are threatened with the viability of the organization if they don't start to take responsibility for their actions. In the last decade they've made some structural changes to create faster responses to large scale human rights violations. The problem still lies, in my opinion, on the sovereignty issue of the Security Council and of course the veto power of the permanent members.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions with which I may be able to help. Chris
