Peacebuilding Journal No. 5
In three articles, this issue of the Journal of Peacebuilding of the Interpeace Regional Office for Latin America addresses the different levels at which the Resilience and Peacebuilding project has been implemented. In the first, the global nature of the project is described, which seeks to contribute to the international debate on resilience and its contribution to peace building. In the second, the coordinator of the Guatemala programme, Mariel Aguilar, reflects on the principal components of the programme in Guatemala, its achievements and challenges. In the third and final article, a number of conversations with four members of the National Group of the Guatemala project discuss the contribution of the resilience perspective for the transformation of the principal problems that face the country’s population. The four conversations reflect the richness and diversity of a group made up individuals from different walks of life who discovered, in the Resilience and Peacebuilding programme, a space to meet and the possibility of shortening the distances that separate them.
