Interpeace would like to welcome the two newest members of the Governing Council: Ms. Necla Tschirgi and Mr. Martin Aked as Honorary Treasurer. They were both formally accepted as member of the Governing Council in early November 2013 at the biannual meeting in Accra, Ghana.

We had the pleasure to sit down and discuss some of their aspirations and views on peace and peacebuilding. Please follow the links below to read the interviews, which give insights into the thoughts and objectives of Interpeaceā€™s newest board members.

Outgoing Governing Council Members

Interpeace would also like to extend its deep appreciation to outgoing Governing Council Members Jan Pronk and Anthony Travis.

Jan Pronk has been a member of Interpeaceā€™s board since 2004 and his active engagement has contributed to advancing Interpeaceā€™s mission.

Anthony Travis has served as Interpeaceā€™s Honorary Treasurer since 2005 and Interpeace has greatly benefitted from his insights and expertise.

We thank them for their vision and commitment to the organization and wish them the best for the future.
