Towards an inclusive peace

Restoring communities, advancing justice

 

 

We live in a time of increasingly complex social realities. Violent extremism is becoming more prevalent, in ever-changing forms. We are often ill-equipped to respond effectively and in a way that is sustainable. Towards an Inclusive Peace is a three-year programme for peacebuilders which takes a human-centred, rather than a security-centred response to violent extremism. Participants from local, national and international governments, NGOs and development aid agencies discuss inspiring case studies of successful transformation and receive training in peacebuilding tools

How can acknowledging and repairing the harm help bring about justice and restore the communities and individuals who have suffered the impact of violent extremism?

In 2018, Towards an Inclusive Peace will discuss restorative justice and how to deal with those who have been radicalized and are either being prosecuted or returning voluntarily to their communities. The five-day event will explore how to care for the needs of victims/survivors and restore communities who have suffered the impact of violent extremism while still listening to perpetrators and respecting their rights. Training will include dialogue, tools of restorative justice, and narrative analysis with case studies from around the world.

 

 
Who is this event for?

We convene a broad range of participants working in peacebuilding and violent extremism, particularly those working at local, national and international governments, NGOs, and cooperation agencies. They include trainers, mediators, conflict researchers, individual peacebuilders and religious leaders, but held together by a desire to learn more about the issue and to explore practical tools they can use in their peacebuilding work.

 

 
What past participants say

This event provided a valuable and important platform where practitioners, participants and experts shared knowledge and information on how to tackle   crucial global issues of violence, extremism and radicalization in the context of the present worldwide crisis.
