QCEA Building Peace Together report launch
21 March 2018, London
The visibility of violent conflict from all over the world in our daily digest of news and media creates a sense that violence – or the threat of violence – is ever-present, when in fact, it is peace that is the norm. Building Peace Together makes the case for peacebuilding and provides a myriad of tools that can be used by actors across the board.
The report argues that peacebuilding requires an in-depth understanding of context, of the nature of the conflict dynamic and a conjuction of actions across a wide range of sectors. It enables any actor to see their engagement through a peacebuilding lens and makes peacebuilding everyone's business.
Opening Remarks and moderation: Marigold Bentley, Head of Peace Programmes and Faith Relations (Quaker Peace & Social Witness)
Olivia Caeymaex, Peace Programme Lead (Quaker Council for European Affairs)
Julian Egan, Head of Advocacy (International Alert)
Charlotte Morris, Senior Conflict Advisor (Department for International Development (DfID))
Respondent: Tobias Wellner, East Africa Programme Manager (QPSW)
