February 10, 6:30pm-8:00pm
Mel Duncan launched the first Nonviolent Peaceforce project in Sri Lanka in 2002. He will describe the use of “unarmed civilian protection.” Examples from South Sudan, Iraq, and the Philippines will demonstrate a variety of methods used to protect civilians in war zones while building peace in those communities of the future.
Mel Duncan is founding executive director of Nonviolent Peaceforce, a civilian peacemaking organization now based in Brussels. They work in conflict zones, to save lives, reduce violence, and build peace.
