Businesses and the future of humanitarian action

Event - 16 July 2014 16:00 - 17:30 (GMT+01 (BST))

Elections in post-conflict states: the best way to legitimacy?

Event - 2 July 2014 14:00 - 16:00 (GMT+01 (BST))
Elections are deemed essential to provide needed legitimacy and to enable citizens to take part in shaping a common future. Yet elections can also be destabilising and act as detonators of (further) violence and conflict if conditions are not right. This event will draw on experiences from a variety of (post)-conflict countries to consider the challenges and opportunities posed by electoral processes in post-conflict setttings.
