Vision Statement

I am deeply concerned about the growing violent response to social, political and economic injustices in the world and the lack of constructive peaceful interventions. I believe that active nonviolence civil resistance and conflict transformation is the key to transform structural and direct violent conflict and address social injustice and change the imbalance of power relation between the conflicting parties. My research aims to develop practices and knowledge to enhance successful peaceful resistance in partnership with local and international movements and to inform policy makers.
