Launch of GPPAC Publication
Perspectives on Peace and Security in a Changing Northeast Asia - Voices from Civil Society and the Ulaanbaatar Process
This publication was created by the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict Northeast Asia (GPPAC-NEA) and the Mongolian NGO Blue Banner — together the conveners of the Ulaanbaatar Process, a civil society led dialogue for peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula, and in the broader Northeast Asian region.
Communication and coordination with contributors and the co-conveners was carried out by GPPAC Northeast Asia Regional Liaison Officer Meri Joyce of Peace Boat, under the guidance of Ambassador Enkhsaikhan Jargalsaikhan, Chairman of GPPAC’s Focal Point in Ulaanbaatar, the Mongolian NGO Blue Banner.
Dozens of people were involved in the preparation and realization of this project. We would like to sincerely thank all the members of organizations represented in this publication who contributed, including not only the authors but also the many other colleagues and friends behind the scenes who supported with translation, research, communication and more.
This publication would not have been possible without the dedicated commitment of editor Anjeli Narandran, who went beyond requests and beyond time zones to collaborate in the process of bringing all of these important contributions together into this volume.
And finally, the organizers would like to dedicate this publication to the late Mr Galsanjamts Sereeter. As a Member of the Governing Council of Blue Banner, Galsanjamts played a crucial role in the development of GPPAC’s work in Northeast Asia and particularly in the Ulaanbaatar Process over the past years. His helpful nature and cheerful demeanor were a great support and delight to all, and he will be dearly missed.
