War isn’t inevitable, and it’s not the best or even a particularly good way of dealing with conflicts. With more than 20 years’ experience working in many of the worst war zones in the world, Kai Brand-Jacobsen shares what is being done every day to deal with conflicts practically, prevent violence, and help communities and people heal after war.

Kai Brand-Jacobsen has been described as “one of the leading pioneers, innovators and practitioners in the field of peacebuilding and dealing with conflicts and crisis in the world today.” For 20 years he has worked across all continents and many of the most challenging war zones and crisis situations in the world. He is the Director of the Department of Peace Operations of PATRIR and the UN supported Nineveh Paths to Peace project in Nineveh, Iraq (KRG), one of the areas worst affected by the ongoing war with ISIS.
