The Pearson Institute will host Shamil Idriss, President and CEO of Search for Common Ground, the world's largest dedicated peacebuilding organization, for the first edition of its winter quarter Discussion Series. Using examples from regions as diverse as sub-Saharan Africa, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and the United States, Idriss will present insights and lessons learned from Search's 36-year track-record of practical peacebuilding in some of the most challenging conflict contexts in the world.  

With an introduction by Institute Director James Robinson, join us to learn more about the practical approaches that yield successful peacebuilding; important trends in international conflict to which the peacebuilding sector must adapt; and the political, bureaucratic and financial realities that will influence the effectiveness of the peacebuilding field in the years to come.
