We are happy to announce the official launch of our Knowledge for Peace project from 20th to 22nd March 2017. We will start off with a public roundtable on Monday afternoon, followed by an International Dialogue Workshop on Tuesday morning and have several sessions for the research team to brainstorm and plan the details of the project.

At the roundtable the panelists will speak about their experiences of peace and justice in different country contexts, covering questions such as what is ‘useful’ knowledge for peace? What kind of knowledge exchanges occur in different peacebuilding contexts? How is knowledge transferred between practice, research and policy making? Are there specific knowledge exchange challenges for transitional justice?
