California State University, Sacramento’s Center for African Peace & Conflict Resolution, and Ghana Association of Certified Mediators and Arbitrators Present the Third International Africa Peace and Conflict Resolution Conference on, ADR and Peace Studies in Africa, 15 Years Later : Lessons and Future Directions.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and related conflict resolution programs emerged in Africa in the mid 1990s, followed by peace studies in the 2000s. During the said periods, many government and educational institutions and non ?governmental organizations have been created in different parts of Africa ; various related programs and projects have been developed or implemented, and certain enabling legislation, policies and institutions to be created. However, there is a paucity of knowledge or research on the key lessons and networking prospects of these various peace and conflict resolution initiatives and their effectiveness in reducing conflicts, increasing peace and development, and promoting social justice. This 3rd international meeting, following earlier meetings in 1998 in Accra and 2008 in Addis Ababa, will attempt to fill the void by identifying the best practices or lessons of current programs, projects and initiatives and assessing gains or progress achieved ; it will also examine the state and nature of regional network in peace building and propose future directions. Filling the current void will provide opportunity for self assessment and reflection among advocates, practitioners and scholars, analysis of common practices and experiences, and ensure sustainability of emergent popularity and promise of peace studies and conflict resolution projects in Africa. The meeting will also facilitate regional networking and development of common standards of ethics for ADR and/or conflict resolution practice and training as well as articulate evaluation benchmarks.
