The Next Century Foundation is a charity devoted to conflict resolution. The sole aim of the Next Century Foundation is to apply a solvent for the fear, insecurity and lack of trust that have bedevilled more public exchanges. The Foundation works to:
Its principal activities have been related to the State of Israel, the Palestinian Authority, the comprehensive Middle East Peace Process (engaging Syria), Iraq, Iran, Sudan, former Yugoslavia, Kashmir and the International Media Council and the concept of Peace through Media.
The Foundation believes that meeting on a non-political level can lubricate the wheels of diplomacy.
Time for a Change
Panel members of The Next Century Foundation believe that it is vital to work towards a climate of order and security to enable the pursuit of peace and reconciliation with justice. We are not a "dialogue group" or "pressure group", however useful these things may be as part of the democratic process. We do not criticise or proselytise. We are not a "friendship group". We do not seek to condemn. We do care for people and their different views. We meet regularly. As a "Forum" we talk through situations, tackling controversial issues in a spirit of reconciliation and bridge-building. We bring together in a quiet, friendly atmosphere many "opposites" who might otherwise never meet. We believe that one of the troubles of today's world is lack of contact, understanding, association or friendship. We believe that problems are allowed to ferment, whereas - with adequate time and patience - quiet understanding can untie every knot.
