Description:

Experts Offer Case Studies -- Sudan to Nepal to El Salvador -- on Sustainable Peacemaking
Specialists in peace processes have understood in recent years that a vital element for preventing warfare is inclusion -- ensuring that all groups in a society have their voices heard and their critical concerns met.  But what are we learning about how too do that, and do it better? On January 31, veterans of peace processes from Nepal to South Sudan to El Salvador to Turkey will discuss the lessons offered by their recent experiences.
Speakers at this forum have worked on violent conflicts from across several continents, to build peace processes that are inclusive.  Their experiences include: working on "national dialogues," such as those aimed at stopping civil wars in South Sudan.  The case studies will include promoting dialogue and conciliation between the government and minority groups in Turkey, and building a public sense of legitimacy and confidence in a peace process in El Salvador that involved armed opposition groups.
