The first 2013 issue of the GPS Update features a report from the Missing Peace Symposium 2013, which took place in February at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) in Washington, DC.

The GPS update also features reports on relevant seminars, reports and policy briefs, as well as a list of new publications which might be of interest to our readership.
