TransConflict is pleased to announce the launch of the Peacebuilders’ Panel, which is designed to stimulate debate about peacebuilding and conflict transformation.
TransConflict invites peacebuilding practitioners, academics, students and enthusiasts to join the debate on the Principles of Conflict transformation!
Each month, TransConflict will invite short submissions – a maximum of 300 words in length – discussing one of the individual principles of conflict transformation. The purpose of this debate is to improve understanding about the respective principles themselves, whilst providing a platform to generate ideas for their amendment and/or augmentation.
The Peacebuilders’ Panel debates to date:
- Conflict transformation – seeks to transform the root causes of particular conflict?
- Conflict transformation – goes beyond merely seeking to manage conflict?
- 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?
How to participate!
Every month TransConflict will announce a new Peacebuilders’ Panel debate, in-line with the Principles of Conflict transformation.
Contributors will then be asked to submit 300 word contributions (either by email or in Word format) to the following address – firstname.lastname@example.org – by the stipulated deadline. All emails should be entitled – “Peacebuilders’ Panel” – and should include your name, affiliation and Twitter handle (if you have one). If you would not like your real name to be used, then please notify us upon submission.
All accepted contributions will be posted on the TransConflict website for further debate and discussion. Please note that contributors will not be remunerated for their submissions.
If you would like to contribute to previous Peacebuilders’ Panels, then you can either use the comment function provided or submit a separate, longer piece for publication on the TransConflict website.
