Innovative Thinking on Strategic Approaches to Conflict Management, The Hague

Announcement Date: October 7, 2015

Organized by the Knowledge Platform Security and Rule of Law, this was a one-day interactive brainstorming session on innovative approaches to conflict management, given the limits of the current international system. Held at The Hague Institute for Global Justice, the primary aim of this workshop was to explore innovative ideas on how to mitigate violent intrastate conflict. To that end, experts from diverse backgrounds:

  • discussed innovative approaches to conflict management that are being utilized by states, international organizations, and non-state actors,
  • identified and explored a number of new avenues to improving conflict management by the international community in concrete cases, and
  • provided inputs for one or more Platform policy briefs on this topic.
