National Peace Academy Updates

We have just returned from Costa Rica and the Fourth Mike Abkin and Dot Maver with President Oscar Arias and Paul van Tongeren of GPPACSummit of the Global Alliance for Ministries and Departments of Peace. The President of Costa Rica, Nobel Peace laureate Dr. Oscar Arias Sanchez, addressed the September 17 opening of the Summit. (Pictured at right, L-R, are Mike Abkin and Dot Maver with Costa Rica President Oscar Arias and Paul Van Tongeren, Secretary-General of the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict, GPPAC).

During the Summit, we represented the National Peace Academy and presented a clinic on Infrastructures of Peace: National Peace Academies. One of the exciting outcomes of the Summit is the decision by the Global Alliance to call for peace academies throughout the world as well as for ministries and departments of peace.
