2.  Public
Advocacy: 
In order to reach stakeholders beyond the academe,
the APPA committee has redirected its work. The Committee is working towards
outputs – policy briefs, interviews, among others to a) make academic
research consumable outside the academic world; b) reach targeted
stakeholders – CSOs, media, governments to advocate for advancing human rights
and peace research in the region.
