Background and Perspective
It would help us if you could tell us a bit about your background and the perspective from which you view intractable conflict-related problems. (Our goal is to be able to craft a final version of the statement that people from a wide range of perspectives can support.)
In principle, does this seem like an effort worth pursuing?
Do you have any specific suggestions for improving either the substance or the language of our initial draft documents?
Might you be interested in helping us develop and pursue this idea? If so, what might you be interested in doing?
Do you have thoughts or suggestions about next steps that should be taken to pursue these ideas further?
Are you aware of individuals or funding organizations who might be willing to support our initial effort to develop and publicize the ideas?
If you are so inclined, we would appreciate any support you might be able to offer. You can use a credit card to contribute financially to the project through the
Beyond Intractability Project Fund at the University of Colorado Foundation. More information about the donation process and options in found on our Donations page.
Thanks for taking the time to look at this. We hope that you will get involved. We owe it to our children and grandchildren to do whatever we can to mobilize a much larger effort to address the conflict problems that are at the core of so many of society's disturbing trends
