CWBI to Conduct Conflict Resolution Training for Afghanistan’s High Peace Council

AfghanHighPeaceCouncilCommunities Without Boundaries International, Inc. (CWBI) will carry out an introduction to reconciliation and conflict resolution education program for members of Afghanistan’s High Peace Council in November 2014. The Afghan High Peace Council is composed of a number of influential members of Afghan society to include politicians, statesmen, military, academic and other walks of life. The purpose of the High Peace Council is to seek reconciliation with insurgents to end the war.

The creation of the High Peace Council was endorsed by Afghan tribal leaders at an Afghan National Consultive Peace Jirga (NCPJ) in June 2010. The three-day national peace jirga or peace conference had nearly 1,500 attendees composed of government officials, tribal leaders and elders, and other representatives. The High Peace Council was created in September 2010.
