Roundtable

Not so bleak: Lessons learned from innovative approaches to peacebuilding

Crafting peace and building a safer world

Peacebuilding and post-conflict reconstruction are often hard to measure and are overlooked for bleaker narratives and headlines. This session is devoted to inclusive, sustainable, and innovative solutions for a broad set of victims of war, from women, refugees, and asylum seekers to victims of arbitrary detentions and torture to name a few. Projects in the Middle East, the North Caucasus, Ukraine, DRC, and Mozambique are among this year’s selected projects showcasing creative solutions to adapt to their context and tackle post-war complexities, from accountability to restoring war victims’ social capital. Using network building, creative anti-corruption campaigns, the use of award-winning technology and much more to the benefit of victims’ inclusive reintegration and reconciliation, these projects give us much-needed solutions to reconstructive action in a fraught world.
