Traditional foreign and security policies over the last decades have been subject to rapid changes and have been replaced by risk prevention, crisis intervention, and preemptive policy measures. Increasingly questions of foreign, security, and developmental policy also have become intertwined with issues of progressive climate change, growing poverty, dwindling resources and the loss of bio-diversity. And, as national interests tend to reign supreme, so far little is done to curtail these developments.
We therefore support civil society structures campaigning for a changed political framework that is able to bring about pro-active peace policies through environmental justice, and social change. We support grassroots activism associated with local and regional peace processes, the representation of women in peace processes, a pluralistic national and regional dialog and cultural understanding.
