In partnership with Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS), NCG hosted an afternoon workshop on the 15th of May 2018 on the complexity of violent conflicts today. The seminar was based on the report “Pathways for Peace”, which was published earlier this year by the World Bank and the UN. 

By 2016, more countries were experiencing violent conflicts than at any time in nearly 30 years, and these conflicts are increasingly complex, involving more non-state groups and international actors.The speakers, Alexandre Marc (the World Bank) and Jago Salmon (UN) shared their insights on how to prevent violent conflicts based on inclusive approaches. One of the take home messages from the seminar was that development policies and programs must be a core part of the preventive efforts when it comes to complex conflicts today.

NCG partner and consultant, Anne-Lise Klausen, held the introcution. The seminar was livestreamed and is available at: diis.dk.
