IPRA QUOTES to Remember

A worldwide system had come about which gave special advantages to the developed countries, in ways whereby many developing countries had much of their wealth unfairly exploited and were unable, regardless of how much time might pass, to become ‘developed countries’ or to extricate themselves from poverty”, former IPRA Secretary General Professor Katsuya Kodama at the 2012 IPRA conference in Tsu city,  Japan

jgaltung “We who started IPRA were from the Northwestern part of the world; however, IPRA has, like the world, moved East and South, with a Turkish Delight and a Sierra Leone Diamond as secretaries, with a Prognosis: we will move on to Islam and China–India still needs time to grow with our Guiding Spirit: Gandhi. Then back to a more modest Northwest, circling on, as we should”, Professor Johann Galtung at the 2014 IPRA in Istanbul

“But we differ, disagree? Incredible how far we can come if we identify and focus on the good and the positive in Kiev, Donetsk and Moscow, or husband and wife in broken marriages rather than what is wrong, and build new relations on that. Peace is a relation, not attributes of the parties. So also for conferences: focus on the best in paper, praise it; not on the dubious and missing.” Professor Johann Galtung at the 2014 IPRA in Istanbul.

"IPRA is a fascinating place where scholars and practitioners from different disciplines and continents   research and try to reconcile   competing peaces. IPRA   has changed.  It was a predominant Western and is now more and more   a cosmopolitan association.  Turbulence is   normal in transformation processes. The next global conference in Sierra Leone in 2016 will encourage us to   get out of our comfort zone,"  Professor Luc Reychler, former IPRA Secretary General in his blog ‘diplomatic thinking’ 2015.

...............................................................

"In a fast changing globalized world, our temperament - the way we deal with time -will determine the success or failure of dealing with global crises, sustainable peacebuilding and development. Despite the urgency of handling time more effectively, too much time is wasted and misused. Let’s check our temperament   and adapt it for more effective peace work,"  Professor Luc Reychler, former IPRA Secretary General at the 2014 IPRA conference in Istanbul.
