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.
