Unarmed Civilian Peacekeeping : Building a Nonviolent Peaceforce
Our new documentary feature film Unarmed Civilian Peacekeeping : Building a Nonviolent Peaceforce is narrated by Nobel Peace Laureate Mairead Maguire and produced by documentary filmmaker Jerry Smith. This 18-minute video powerfully makes the case that unarmed civilian peacekeeping is the best hope for reducing and preventing violent conflict around the world. Filled with images and audio of NP peacekeepers at work and the people they protect, the film offers a concise and compelling description of what NP does, how it does it, and why it works.
"We’re not romanticizing these concepts," says NP Executive Director Mel Duncan near the conclusion of the film. "This is hard-nosed hope that’s been fostered in some of the most violent places in the world today and is working. There is growing recognition and deep understanding among people that this is not only working, but this is the way that we have to go."
We hope you’ll enjoy viewing the film and share it with others who would like to know about this rapidly growing global alternative to violence.
