Relational Peacebuilding Initiatives (RPI) is pleased to invite you to hear about a proposed Track Two Peacebuilding initiative across the Korean Peninsula.
The situation in the Korean peninsula is becoming critical. Talks between the United States and North Korea have reached an impasse. Neither trusts the other to deliver on their promises. This meeting provides an opportunity for you to hear the team explain its proposal for a Track Two process.
The team will explain why they are hopeful that this proposal will be accepted by the US, North Korea and South Korea as the talks about denuclearisation are stalling. RPI is seeking to build up immediately a fund to enable them to carry through the talks underpinning this process, which have to come from sources acceptable to the parties and not reflect any political bias.
Relational Peacebuilding Initiatives (RPI) is a Swiss Association based in the Canton of Geneva. It facilitates behind the scene consultations which aim to help turn major conflicts into lasting and satisfactory political settlements. As can be seen on the RPI website, the team has extensive experience of peacebuilding from work in South Africa before the end of Apartheid, in Rwanda, and in Sudan to help to bring an end to the war between North and South Sudan in the early 2000s. RPI has developed a Track Two peacebuilding methodology which is applicable in many conflict situations around the world.
Research for RPI and its conference programs is undertaken in collaboration with Relational Research in Cambridge, UK.
