Hi Alistair,

 

Great meeting on you on this site.  Would love to be in correspondence with you.  I am new in peace building - having just returned from the African Peace Building Institute in Zambia.

Dear Alistair,
Thanks so much for the tips - I had actually come across Lederach's book (have just read snippets) and thought that is a "must buy" book! I'll join up the sites you suggested, too. Thanks again!
Cheers,
Andria

Dear Alistair,
I notice that you posted some info re the Centre for Dialogue and other peace studies unis in Oz. Am beginning my PhD in anthropology entitled: "Indigenous Peacebuilding Through Art: Hunter Region" and have never done any peace studies before (nor has my supervisor!!). Can you recommend any essential reading for peacebuilding (eg essential ingredients, how to evaluate its sustainability etc, Indigenous case studies...). Good luck with your forced migration work, too.
Cheers,
Andria Durney

Dear David

My hometown border is Burma and I belong to a divided land between the Indian Government and Burma. ie Naga. It would be interesting to share our ideas about Burma.
