Local Ownership in Peace Processes

22 Jun 2021 | Online

Organized By : Peace Direct

Are you a local activist, changemaker, organizer, healer, or peacebuilder? Then join Principles for Peace and Peace Direct in a one-day conversation on ‘Local Ownership in Peace Processes' on June 22 discussing how to better structure, sequence and build more inclusive peace processes around the world. 

During the consultation, some of the key questions we will be asking are as follows: 

  • What do you understand by the term ‘local ownership’? What about ‘local leadership’? Are these terms useful?
  • What do you think current approaches to peace processes have failed to consider when it comes to local actors?
  • What do you think of the relationship between the international community and the local actors in peace processes?
  • How could we achieve greater local ownership in peace processes?

While the main language of the consultation will be in English, there will also be opportunity for more focused discussions in French, Spanish in Arabic. Participants who speak French, Spanish and Arabic will be able to use the automatic translate function built into the discussion platform.

Register for the consultation using this link, by June 17th.
