On 23 November 2018, the University of Bristol hosted the final Resilient Peace workshop in Bristol, UK, on “Exploring resilient peacebuilding actors, cultures and policy transfer in West Africa”. This was complemented by a series of events related to an IAS Benjamin Meaker Visiting Professorship for Prof Ransford Gyampo (University of Ghana).
The day-long Resilient Peace final workshop on “Exploring resilient peacebuilding actors, cultures and policy transfer in West Africa” focused on some of the key themes of the collaboration work conducted during the year-long project. Common themes through all of the papers related to the measurement of types and levels of peace and resilience in various contexts.
