Why Local Peace Agreements Matter
December 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This webinar will offer a glimpse into the processes and outcomes of local peace processes, featuring data from the PA-X Local Peace Agreements Database.
This event will examine what we can learn from local peace agreements about what conflict landscapes look like, and to what extent our conceptualisations of armed conflict work. We will then look at a case study of local agreements in Syria, with a focus on how particular they are from national agreements but also how ‘local’ they actually are in the context of a complex nested conflict, and then look at additional examples of local agreements from Yemen and sub-Saharan Africa. The event will finish with an open Q&A and the opportunity for discussion.
Featuring PSRP’s Dr Juline Beaujouan and Robert Wilson, with special guest Dr Jan Pospisil from the Austrian Study Centre for Peace and Conflict Resolution, alongside Dr Rim Turkmani from the Conflict Research Programme at the London School of Economics and Political Science as event chair.
The webinar will be held over Zoom, with joining links emailed to registered participants.
This event is part of PSRP’s Peace Talks webinar series, which will run from October 2020 – March 2021.
