    Webinar: Launch event for Accord No.29 “Pioneering peace pathways” and new report on public attitudes in Japan towards peacebuilding and dialogue with armed groups

    SPF in collaboration with Conciliation Resources (CR), a UK-based organization specializing in peace mediation support, held an online launch event on October 15, 2020 to present two new publications, “Pioneering Peace Pathways: Making connections to end violent conflict” and a new report, “Public support for peacebuilding: Public attitudes in Japan towards peacebuilding and dialogue with armed groups.”

    The first publication, “Pioneering Peace Pathways: Making connections to end violent conflict,” is the latest edition of CR’s Accord publication series. This publication explores the essential ingredients necessary to foster peace dialogue in violent conflict, the ways that societies and conflict parties can try to move from fighting to talking, and strategies for policymakers and peace practitioners to accompany and effectively support conflicting parties.


    SPF and CR are also launching a new report, “Public support for peacebuilding: Public attitudes in Japan towards peacebuilding and dialogue with armed groups,” which outlines the results from a public opinion survey on attitudes towards peacebuilding conducted in Japan in December 2019. This survey found that the majority of Japanese people support peacebuilding activities including dialogue with armed groups.
