GPPAC and Utrecht University would like to use this occasion to reflect on the challenges and potential pathways to inclusive conflict prevention with researchers, international civil society practitioners and policy makers. The panel discussion will draw on practical experiences, knowledge and lessons learned from the speakers, which will draw partially on the findings from the WOSCAP project. These findings will be shared with the audience in advance of the meeting to provide food for thought on a number of key questions.
The WOSCAP research includes several thematic reports, but also case studies from Mali, Georgia, Ukraine and Yemen, which can be found here. The event will be preceded by a policy dialogue with representatives of the Dutch MFA, Ministry of Defence and other relevant stakeholders on some of the project’s findings and recommendations on the EU’s approach to Security Sector Reform (SSR).
