Chapter 11: Cultivating Peace

Forthcoming: Highlights from my work at the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and afterwards as a consultant working on my own and with Jacques under the auspices of our company SAS2 Dialogue. Rebels in Nagaland in northeastern India, peacemakers in Central America, archers in Bhutan and high school drop outs in northern Canada challenged me to walk the talk, and forced me to do better. Successes, and failures, both point to what is and what could be the path of activism informed by research and guided by the people most directly involved.
