How Governance Functions: Case studies of seven countries through the lens of Political Accommodation

Conflict Dynamics is very pleased to share its latest publication How Governance Functions: Case studies of seven countries through the lens of Political Accommodation.

Governance case studies are indispensable in Conflict Dynamics’ work to support stakeholders to develop relevant and practical proposals for dialogue and governance in Somalia/Somaliland, South Sudan, Sudan, and Syria. The overall purpose of the case studies is to show how elements of governance systems interact in the real world and deepen the pool of ideas for how governance structures may best support peace and stability in a specific context. This new compilation of case studies is intended for use by those who are interested in different options for how to improve governance systems where they operate.

Presenting Political Accomodation at the African Union Pan-African Parliament

Conflict Dynamics presented “Political Accommodation” at the Committee on Cooperation, International Relations and Conflict Resolution of the African Union Pan-African Parliament. Political Accommodation is Conflict Dynamics’ approach to peacebuilding, in which people with diverse interests take account of others’ perspectives without compromising their own core interests. Program Directors Roger Middleton and Ayesha Elbereir shared Conflict Dynamics’ experience supporting peacebuilding in Somalia, South Sudan and Syria, and the success and challenges of conflict resolution in these contexts. The Committee was made up of Members of Parliament from Namibia, Sierra Leone, Sudan, Western Sahara, Egypt, and Swaziland among others, who were very enthusiastic in learning about practical, on-the-ground work for political accomodation.
