TransConflict is pleased to announce the third Peacebuilders’ Panel, which is designed to stimulate debate about peacebuilding and conflict transformation amongst practitioners, academics, students and enthusiasts alike.
The third debate will focus on the principle that:
“3. Conflict transformation goes beyond merely seeking to contain and manage conflict, instead seeking to transform the root causes themselves – or the perceptions of the root causes – of a particular conflict;”
To read contributions to the first two Peacebuilders’ Panel debates, please visit the following links:
- Conflict – a potentially positive force for change?
- Conflict – an inherently negative and destructive occurrence?
- Conflict – an isolated event that can be resolved or managed?
- Conflict – an integral part of society’s on-going evolution?
