Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict
A Discussion with Chris Mahony, Pablo de Greiff & Paige Arthur
Wednesday, November 8, 2017 | 3:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.

There is no fee for this event, please sign in to register.

Description:
Guarantees of non-recurrence of mass atrocities are central to peacebuilding and sustainable development. The United Nation’s new Sustainable Development Goals recognize in Goal 16 the importance of peace, inclusion, and access to justice in achieving sustainable development. However, there is limited research and understanding of the factors that may positively influence conflict reduction including the role of constitutions, human rights institutions, and transitional justice processes. In this discussion, we present a study by Dr. Chris Mahony, Research Fellow at the Centre for International Law Research and Policy, which looks into the relationship between these factors and conflict reoccurrence. The presentation will be followed by a discussion and comments on the study by other transitional justice scholars. The study is part of a joint World Bank-United Nations study, “Pathways for Peace: Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict.”
