PIN Workshop: Is Reconciliation Negotiable?
Europe/Amsterdam 09 2013 09:00

Third workshop in reconciliation project of  PIN Program
11 October 2013, St Mary’s College, Durham University

In a world where up to 40% of peace agreements slip back into violent conflicts within a decade, how might reconciliation between groups with a long history of conflict be achieved? What kind of conditions must be negotiated to sustain peaceful relations between parties and carry them jointly into a non-violent future? Is reconciliation actually negotiable and if so, under what circumstances? This workshop provides an unique opportunity to explore the role of reconciliation as a means of preventive negotiation.

The reconciliation as preventive negotiation project is convened by Mark Anstey and Valerie Rosoux  and is part of the Processes of International Negotiation (PIN) program of the Clingendael Netherlands Institute of International Relations. This workshop is co-organized by the Durham Global Security Institute of Durham University. The findings of the reconciliation project will be published in book form with a commercial publisher in 2015.
