Building the Peace Army: Research and Practice


“Armed peacekeepers are 12 times more likely to be killed in the line of duty than unarmed peacekeepers.”

–Randy Janzen sharing some of his research on unarmed peacekeeping on this show…

In today’s show we go into the concept of unarmed peacekeeping and its expression of building a “peace army” or “shanti sena” through nonviolence skills trainings. We are joined by two guests: Randy Janzen, unarmed civilian peacekeeping researcher from the Mir Center for Peace at Selkirk College, Canada; and Kazu Haga, Kingian nonviolence trainer from East Point Peace Academy. Kazu ends the show with a love letter to the listeners, responding to the challenge posed by Thich Nhat Hanh. This and your nonviolence in the news for the week.

Listen to the show for your inspiration for the week.
