Programme theme: Conflict prevention, resolution and state building

Our work covers a wide range of issues related to European strategy and the consequences. Challenges to European security: parliamentary perspectives and responses approached these issues from a political perspective, focusing in upon the successes of fringe political movement and radical parties across Europe and the Russian destabilisation efforts throughout.

We also added to our body of work on conflict prevention in Africa, Peacebuilding in Africa: developing African approaches was the second part of a continued discussion on African perspectives of the peacebuilding process. It looked at new initiatives on the continent beyond the predominant approaches and interventions traditionally pursued by international actors. The finding of these will then be discussed with regional and sub-regional organisations as well as policy makers within multiple African nations to help shape future policy.
