Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies

Conference “Restoring peace: building post-conflict societies”

Date: July 3, 2017
Place: Liverpool Hope University, Creative Campus
Deadline: April 15, 2017

Academic interest in peace building has traditionally looked at societies in transition to peace in the immediate years following a conflict. Yet, less is known about peace building as a long-term process. This conference aims to explore the ways that a multiplicity of actors and processes advance peace and stability in societies overcoming conflict. It also seeks to interrogate not only traditional issues related to peacebuilding such as security, human rights and economic development, but also aspects related to the symbolic and cultural expressions of reconciliation and social cohesion.

By taking action together with their partners they achieve meaningful impacts in their communities.
