When is the last time you heard President Obama, or any other national leader for that matter, proposing a major escalation in support for non-violent, community-centered approaches to conflict resolution?  Seems idealistic right? The only response to the violence in Syria—and other global “hotspots” is more violence.  Bring in the drones!

Mel Duncan, co-founder of the Nonviolent Peaceforce (NVPF), begs to differ. He joins TruthtoTell host Tom O’Connell for a conversation about lessons learned from 12 years of civilian peace-making in the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and South Sudan and how NVPF is teaming up with local leaders in Syria to create dialogue and conflict prevention across political and sectarian divides.
