International Alert is pleased to invite you to attend the eleventh in a series of Peace Talks:
CRIME, GANGS AND THE CHANGING FACES OF CONFLICT
Building peace means addressing the sources of civil and political unrest, whether in Ukraine, DRC or Northern Ireland. It also means dealing with the criminal networks that flourish in conflict’s shadow.
And there are countries such as Mexico where millions of people live under the threat of organised violence rooted in crime, much of it drugs related, much of it to do with urban gangs. And other countries where crime, politics and armed conflict intertwine so tightly they can barely be distinguished from each other.
This Peace Talks event asks how we can adapt to these new contexts and challenges, and what peacebuilding has to offer to strategies for addressing criminal violence. It coincides with our recent report, Crime and conflict: The new challenges for peacebuilding.
The event is free to attend and will be followed by a reception.
A detailed programme will follow soon. Please RSVP on Eventbrite by 17 October 2014.
