Enjoy a riveting seminar with extraordinary guest Dr. Severine Autesserre, author of 'The Frontlines of Peace.' Dr. Autesserre will lead an interactive seminar designed for the international community and anyone that has ever wished to understand the peacebuilding process. Dr. Autesserre’s latest book is on sale now and we are offering two options for admission: if you purchase the book (from your favorite independent bookstore, your favorite online retailer, or one of the suggested booksellers listed on the website) and send in an email with your receipt they will send you the Zoom link. Alternatively, you can book on the website and they will send you the Zoom link. An award-winning researcher and peacebuilder, Séverine Autesserre, examines the well-intentioned but inherently flawed peace industry in her new book, THE FRONTLINES OF PEACE. With examples drawn from across the globe, she reveals that peace can grow in the most unlikely circumstances. Contrary to what most politicians preach, building peace doesn't require billions in aid or massive international interventions. Real, lasting peace requires giving power to local citizens. THE FRONTLINES OF PEACE tells the stories of the ordinary yet extraordinary individuals and organizations that are confronting violence in their communities effectively. One thing is clear: successful examples of peace-building around the world, in countries at war or at peace, have involved innovative grassroots initiatives led by local people, at times supported by foreigners, often employing methods shunned by the international elite. By narrating success stories of this kind, Autesserre shows the radical changes we must take in our approach if we hope to build lasting peace around us--whether we live in Congo, the United States, or elsewhere.
