Building Peace: A Forum for Peace and Security in the 21st Century shares stories of people, communities, and organizations that are transforming the face of peace and security around the world. More than 1.5 billion people live in conflict affected and fragile states, and suffer acute levels of violence. Many people do not realize, however, that every day women, men, and children are working to prevent violence and consolidate peace in their local communities and capitals through dialogue, reconciliation, development activities, human rights initiatives, and governance processes. Building Peace offers a window into this dynamic of creating and maintaining vibrant, peaceful, inclusive societies. Be sure to follow us at @BPForumMag and "Like" us on Facebook.
