The assumption is by learning about each other's cultures, languages, lives, that people can do discover what they have in common, as well as explore their differences and…

Media fuel misperceptions about Lebanon

By Steven Youngblood

Director, Center for Global Peace Journalism



(Beirut, Lebanon)--When I told my friends, family, and colleagues that I was heading to Beirut, Lebanon, the reaction was shock and horror. How could I go to such an unstable, dangerous place?

It is neither related to religious beliefs nor mysticism. A practitioner of Yoga knows its powerful and sobering impact on human mind, and also knows how it can bring peace in human mind and consequently on human action with bearing on society. Yoga implies many things. There are…

My Perspective on Peace

This is my first blog for Peace and Collaborative Development Network. This is a kind of first venture in which I write my perspective on peace. Though I have worked in conflict areas in South Asia and in some other areas, I have never articulated my perspective or perspectives on peace. I use this opportunity to lay out my ideas about peace. I am an optimist to the core and strongly adhere to the belief that there is nothing impossible in human life and society. If there is a problem, there…
