How can we measure 'peace'?
The Kofi Annan Foundation, Geneva Peacebuilding Platform, Interpeace, the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue and Geneva Centre for Security Policy invite you to ‘Measuring Peace: Principles, Practices & Politics’ a presentation of the new book by Professor Richard Caplan.
Richard Caplan is Professor of International Relations at the University of Oxford and Fellow of Linacre College.
Half of post-war countries lapse back into conflict in the first decade after the end of fighting. Professor Caplan's book looks at what tools are effective in measuring progress towards building lasting peace and provides evidence-based policy recommendations on how to enhance peacebuilding efforts.
