I’m Saurav. I am the Research Manager at the Alliance for Peacebuilding and I’m joining from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the US. I found ConnexUs through the ConnexUs and Search for Common Ground teams.
I’m looking forward learning more about how we can leverage this amazing platform that you’ve created to network and connect with other peacebuilders around the world and learn and share more about our respective work. Part of that starts with me. I want to make sure I remember ConnexUs when I have something to share with the community.
Thank you all!Created 03/24/2022 at 5:43 pm

My name is Katherine Clerides I live in Cyprus, which is a forcibly divided island, and have been working for reconciliationa and reunification between the two major communities on the island, Greek and Turkish Cypriots, for the last 30 years. I am currently retired from politics but was active in politics for many years as a Parliamentarian in the Republic of Cyprus.
I recently finished a book based on my experiences in peace-building in Cyprus but also looking at polerization in a wider context entitled “Building Bridges in a Polerized World and Divided Cyprus.” The book will be published this fall in Cyprus but I am happy to share it with anyone who would like to read it on line free of charge.
I heard about ConnexUs through the Afp webinar.Created 08/30/2022 at 8:48 am
