Post 2015: Stability & Peace

In case you're one of the many attending the various events around the United Nations General Assembly meetings later next week, the event below is well worth attending. If you do, you'll gain perspectives from North, South, the rising powers in the form of China and civil society from the grass roots of some of the most challenging and complex environments in which to "do" development. I hope to see some of you there.
