This workshop will focus on the cutting edge developments in a “just peace” approach to engaging conflict in the form of unarmed civilian peacekeeping. The Nonviolent Peaceforce has been successfully experimenting with this practice for over 10 years. They’ve been in South Sudan since 2010. They’ve trained local Sudanese and have empowered a women-based peace team. We’ll take lessons from this team, which the UN relies on, and see how far a force for peace can go.
