What’s left to do in the Decade to Overcome Violence?

I just got sent a copy of a speech Rev Jon Inkpin gave to the Pax Christi NSW AGM. Some interesting thoughts here – perhaps a good ‘glass half-full’ counterpoint to my pessimistic article Kyrie Eleison from a few weeks ago.

Jon is the General Secretary of the NSW Ecumenical Council and one-time coordinator of the Decade to Overcome Violence (DOV) project of the National Council of Churches in Australia, so he is well qualified to reflect on its successes and failures since 2001.

I’ve uploaded the speech as a PDF.
