Private Event: Workshop

Participation in this event is by invitation only

An author meeting for a new CIGI book on peace and conflict diplomacy in the current international environment. In the book, we plan to examine whether the accepted tools of diplomacy, whether coercive or non-coercive, work in this era of rising nationalism, renewed major power tension and challenges by non-state actors to peace and security.  The book explores the consequences for peace and conflict diplomacy of this uncertainty in the international environment, focusing on the cooperation-contestation spectrum. The book will be looking from the perspectives of different regions of the world on the issue, as well as the impact on several critical issues of a breakdown in peace and conflict diplomacy.

Book editors: 

  • CIGI Senior Fellow Pamela Aall
  • CIGI Distinguished Fellow Chester A. Crocker
  • CIGI Distinguished Fellow and Director of the Global Security and Politics Program, Fen Osler Hampson.
