In 2010, AFSC and Development Education Innovations, Southern Africa Trust (DEISAT), organized a series of learning group meetings to support, stimulate, and act as a resource for the conflict transformation and peace-building work that already exists in Zimbabwe. Participants met with the hope of deepening and increasing their individual and collective capacities to break the culture of violence and build peace in Zimbabwe and beyond.

The Dispatches on peace and sustainable development reports collect and summarize the 24 meetings that took place over a five-year period among development practitioners, academics, and community members. Topics ranged from peace, social justice, and reconciliation to conflict transformation, human rights, climate change, and socio-economic empowerment.

It’s our hope that readers will find the material informative, enriching, and useful in stimulating further discussions on issues that enhance peace-building processes in Zimbabwe and other parts of the world.
