Anniversary event series

To mark our anniversary, throughout 2021 we are working with our partners on a series of events that showcase the connections between conflict transformation and other fields – from climate change to constitution-making. By bringing leading experts together for exchange and learning, we are helping to bridge gaps and promote joined-up engagement on topics of critical importance.
