From the Sahel to the Horn of Africa and Southern Africa, armed conflicts continue to challenge the development and political stability of many African societies. While they may often receive little nuanced public attention in Europe and Finland, such conflicts are complex and shaped by a variety of local, regional, and international conflict management and prevention efforts. The Finnish Institute of International Affairs and the New Foreign Policy Society in Finland (NUPS) are delighted to invite you to a timely discussion on Conflict Dynamics in Africa: Ways and means of prevention. The seminar’s key presentation will be given by the President and CEO of the International Crisis Group (ICG), Dr Comfort Ero, who will share her reflections on the continent’s peace and conflict dynamics and the challenges and opportunities for conflict prevention.
