Roundtable at Carnegie Corporation of New York
From violence to exiting violence, a comparative perspective
In the context of expanding conflict in the Euro-Mediterranean region, the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme and Carnegie Corporation of New York will convene members of the International Panel on Exiting Violence (IPEV) and United Nations officials to discuss policy options for the process of de-escalating social conflict and violent transnational movements.
A strong emphasis will be put on militant transnational actors in the Arab region, and the spillover effects of conflict in the West. Approaches towards de-radicalization, peace-building and reconciliation will also be analyzed and discussed through a comparative lens with the processes of violence and exiting violence in Latin America as a frame of reference.
The discussion will be chaired by William O’Neill, director of the « Conflict prevention and peace forum », Social Science Research Council, New York.
