Peace & Reconciliation

Buddhism and Conflict Transformation

This particular project is in the process of being prepared and is considered to be another complement and natural outgrowth of INEB’s work in collaboration with its extensive network. Several components will be integrated into the program design which will be driven by a working group called the Buddhism and Conflict Transformation Group (BCTG). The specific components identified so far are to:

  • Continue networking and build a database and online resource by gathering information from individuals and organizations connected to INEB
  • Design a practical toolkit of Buddhist inspired Conflict Transformation
  • Collaborate with national and international organizations to help bring a Buddhist perspective into aspects of conflict transformation
  • More deeply research conflict transformation through seminars offered through INEB conferences
  • Form a Buddhist Think Tank ideally connected to an existing research and academic centre


Four-fold Approach to Peace Building – Rajagopal P. V.

Gandhi saw nonviolence as the instrument of the strong. This realization has come to me after many years of working with the most marginalized communities in India. It is for this reason we have developed the Four-Fold Approach to Peacebuilding.
