On the 5th and 6th of November The Hague Peace Projects, the Institute for Social Studies (ISS) and African Diaspora Policy Centre (ADPC) organize a Diaspora Conference on the Great Lakes Region under the title: “Root Causes of Conflict & Opportunities for Peace.” We would hereby like to invite you for this event.
The Hague Peace Projects, ADPC and ISS aim to facilitate the positive and effective contribution of the diaspora communities from Rwanda, Uganda, Burundi and DR Congo to the peace process in their region of origin. Through open discussion and dialogue, people from all different diaspora backgrounds will reflect on the context of the conflict. By sharing their knowledge and expertise, they will be able to analyse the main obstacles to sustainable peace. Together they will formulate possibilities on how these obstacles could be overcome and how they could become engaged in this peace building process.
When: November 5 & 6, 09:00 – 17:00 Where: Institute of Social Studies, Kortenaerkade 12, The Hague Language: English Moderators: Victor Scheffers and Jan van der Kolk
