Karuna Connectors 

Thank you to everyone who joined us on September 20! Our next event is to-be-announced in November 2022.

Previous Event Recordings:

Moving from Conflict to Cooperation—Community Peacebuilding in Nigeria (9/20/22)

Seth Karamage, Karuna Center Board Member and Lead Consultant/Dialogue Coach for the Protecting Our Communities Initiative in Nigeria, facilitated a discussion with Ahmad Jumare, Programme Manager at Neem Foundation, and Imam Muhammad Sani Isah, Intervention Director at Interfaith Mediation Centre and Religious Leader Liaison for Karuna Center.

Women’s Peace Leadership—Creating Change in Iraq, Nigeria, and Beyond (5/25/22)

While the involvement of women leaders is strongly correlated with longer-lasting peace, women’s vital contributions often go unrecognized, and women are typically excluded from peace and security decisions. How can peacebuilding processes reverse this trend? We were joined by Dr. Fatima Akilu, Executive Director of Neem Foundation in Nigeria, and Suzan Aref, Founder and Director of Women Empowerment Organization in Iraq.

More Than Just Talk—Dialogue and Environmental Justice (3/1/22)

Tina Johnson and Olivia Dreier co-facilitate Transforming the Conversation on Carbon Pricing. We talked with them about this unique initiative, which brings a range of environmental justice leaders and carbon pricing advocates together for confidential dialogues that cultivate common ground.

Not Just Today’s Headline—Building Long-Term Peace (11/16/21)

Experienced peacebuilders who have long been involved with Karuna Center—Rosette Sebasoni, Amra Pandžo, and Ravindra Kandage—joined us to discuss the ways in which building peace requires long-term commitment, nurturing, and support.

The Power of Dialogue (9/28/21)
