Video Tour of Peacebuilding in Afghanistan

During her December 2009 visit to Afghanistan, Lisa Schirch, director of the Ploughshares-funded 3D Security Initiative filmed individuals and organizations working to build bridges across social divides.  Her subjects include the Islamic Empowerment Party's Peace Jirga, the Cooperation for Peace and Unity (CPAU), and the Center for Conflict and PeaceStudies (CAPS). The videos explore peacebuilding efforts, such as peaceful ways of addressing conflicts, promoting rule of law, participatory governance and human rights and how to create democratic decision-making forums for addressing the root causes of conflicts.  Click here to watch all 11 videos on 3D's YouTube Channel.
