    Dr Rebecca Brubaker is quoted in South China Morning Post article marking the 75th anniversary of the United Nations, based on her research Back from the Brink.

    “Rebecca Brubaker, a senior adviser at the UN University’s Centre for Policy Research, suggested that preventive diplomacy efforts – where political disputes are forestalled from becoming full-blown conflicts – could be stepped up through the establishment of more UN regional political offices. At present there are three such offices, serving central Africa, West Africa and the Sahel region, and Central Asia. In the past decade, on-the-ground staff from these missions have defused tinderbox situations in the likes of Gambia and Gabon.”
