Towards an Inclusive Peace 2018
July 11 @ 4:30 pm - July 15 @ 1:00 pm$600
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.
