(2008; NYC; 4 staff; gapwblog.wordpress.com)

The Global Action to Prevent War (GAPW)  is a “UN-based, transnational network of civil society, academic and diplomatic partners dedicated to practical measures for reducing levels of global conflict and to removing institutional and ideological impediments to addressing armed violence, mass atrocities and severe human rights violations at the earliest possible stages.” It works towards “conflict prevention in specific, integrated phases of policy work and pursues program priorities that demonstrate in a concrete way how we can move from an international system based on conflict and power relations to one grounded in law and robust multilateral institutions.” They have also promoted “a comprehensive framework for human security that moves us towards a gradual but irreversible, global demilitarization.”
