In the immediate aftermath of the September 11,2001 (9\ 11) terrorist strikes in the United States of America and the London bombings of July 7,2005, we have seen range of events that impacted, altered and strengthened the need to discuss and debate questions of peace and security in international relations. The Middle East crisis, the Arab Springs, the growing threat of North Korea nuclear capabilities, the fundamentalist Islamist network in Africa stretching from Somalia, Libya, the 'Boko Haram' upheaval in Nigeria and Darfur crisis in Sudan: all represent topical global security issues. In a period marked by such rapid and fundamental threats to global peace, it has become imperative to seek to encourage the exploration of global and regional problems concerning international security through scholarly lenses. It is most pleasing to report at this stage that in the recent years, there have been a surge of interest in support of the peace movement. The thought for this diary of global conflicts and peace building measures, was motivated after such eruption . Welcome to Volume One, in the series of this operational journal for peace and civil society activists.
