This month we are pleased to announce the launch of Resilient Peace, a year-long exploratory project led by the University of Bristol and funded by the Worldwide Universities Network’s Research Development Fund.
Resilient Peace’s Mission
Through a series of three workshops throughout 2018, we will bring together leading experts from world-class academic institutions to establish a hub of expertise addressing how to achieve and exceed the aims of SDG 16 in West Africa. As will be elaborated below, this is a generalised continuum of problems and solutions, and one that requires expertise from multidisciplinary and multinational approaches. The insights from this project will contribute to a better understanding of why resilience approaches in peacebuilding either fail or succeed, notably by examining how they are received at the local level.
