Dayton Peace Accords II (DPAII)
The COVID-19 pandemic affected every country, culture, and citizen negatively and Dayton was not spared, but is in a historically unique position to help turn this tragedy into an opportunity for peace and prosperity. In planning for the POST COVID-19 world a diplomatic solution should be sought that meets this goal and could create a new era of global, ethical, bioscience research standards. The success of the 1995 DPA positions Dayton uniquely as the potential location for diplomacy to rise.

No, this is developmental. There is much interest, particularly among economic development representatives in surrounding communities and among candidates for the November 8, 2022 mid-term elections, but no commitments as this is not a platform plank. Wright State’s Bioscience Department is interested as well.
The problem-solving and leadership embodied in the Dayton Peace Accords (DPA- the successful negotiation of peace in Bosnia-Herzegovina at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in 1995) provides a model of how to proceed. Dayton was picked as the location for negotiations because of its proximity to Washington, D.C. and possession of a secure location for the protection of the negotiation teams at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, while remaining somewhat remote. Dayton should once again offer itself as the preferred location for this new era of global security discussions. With two universities, a technically adept community college, the Dayton Art Institute, the Dayton Live performing arts coalition and international commerce corporations anchored here, our community would benefit from job creation, global attention and revitalization projects along the I-75/70 corridors.

Once begun, diplomacy is a growth industry in terms of personnel, technology and infrastructure needs; the estimates are very conservative.
