A Civil Society Dialogue for Peace and Stability in Northeast Asia

Inflammatory rhetoric and the escalation of several territorial disputes in the region emphasize the need to maintain space for dialogue and build trust and confidence between all parties. In order to move towards realising regional peace and stability, it is important to revitalize dialogue processes on wide-ranging issues, based on mutual trust and confidence among all parties. Since 2015 GPPAC launched the Ulaanbaatar Process, which aims to create peace and stability in the region through the promotion of civil society dialogue.
