SARAJEVO SYMPOSIUM ON POST-CONFLICT TRANSITIONS

15 - 29 JULY 2017

SARAJEVO SCHOOL OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY 

(Hrasnička cesta 3A, Ilidža, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina)

 

We are proud to announce that the University Sarajevo School of Science and Technology, in partnership with the International Peace & Security Institute (IPSI), is organizing the inaugural Sarajevo Symposium that will take place at SSST on July 15-29, 2017.

The Sarajevo Symposium will engage participants in contemporary theory and practice of post-conflict political transitions using current case studies (Colombia, Iraq/Syria, and others) to reflect on the successes and failures of the former Yugoslavia with the actual decision-makers. Experts in the field will try to deliver a deep understanding of post-conflict strategies, including security, justice, political, and social mechanisms.

 

Train. Transition. Transform. - What does it stand for?

Train with experts to gain a deep understanding of post-conflict strategies, including security, justice, political, and social mechanisms.  Learn which approaches have been successful, which failed, and which are beyond the reach of policy. In gaining a cross-sectoral perspective on post-conflict transitions, you will be able to transform conflicts around the world over the course of your career.

The participants will have the opportunity to learn directly from the most accomplished academics and practitioners in the field through their personal on-the-ground experience.
