Plenary and break-out sessions:

  • Navigating inclusion in transitions from conflict

  • Local struggles for human rights and equality: entry points for political change

  • Unsticking the stuck: peace implementation, formalised unsettlements and ideas for moving them forward

  • Tactics for change and changing tactics: from dirty deal to social contract in deeply divided societies

  • How to support social change through peace processes and beyond
