The International Panel on exiting violence meets in New York and Washington

Mid-term rountables on Novembre 14-15

From violence to exiting violence, a comparative perspective

In the context of expanding conflict in the Euro-Mediterranean region, the Fondation Maison des sciences de l’homme and Carnegie Corporation of New York will convene members of the International Panel on Exiting Violence (IPEV) and United Nations officials to discuss policy options for the process of de-escalating social conflict and violent transnational movements.

A strong emphasis will be put on militant transnational actors in the Arab region, and the spillover effects of conflict in the West. Approaches towards de-radicalization, peace-building and reconciliation will also be analyzed and discussed through a comparative lens with the processes of violence and exiting violence in Latin America as a frame of reference.

The discussion will be chaired by William O’Neill, director of the « Conflict prevention and peace forum », Social Science Research Council, New York.

International panel for exiting violence

While there exists a substantial amount of research on the subject of violence, both its causes and modalities, little exists on exiting violence.

Contemporary forms of violence, their tragic consequences – exile, forced migration, all sorts of crises – and the challenges encountered by those who are working towards putting an end to these issues, invite us to bridge this gap and begin laying the groundwork for a new research field.

The International Panel on Exiting Violence (IPEV) is a multidisciplinary community of researchers and specialists who have gained international recognition for their work on contemporary forms of violence. Its objective is to produce an analytical report containing recommendations for political and social decision-makers.

For a period of two years, nearly two hundred researchers from all over the world will contribute to the analysis of the processes involved in exiting violence as part of an ongoing dialogue with policy-makers and practitioners.

A new research field

Current research on exiting violence is still essentially sparse, monographic and confined to certain expertise. It is therefore a matter of meeting the existing critical need for collective and collaborative analysis in order to provide the basis for structuring and laying the foundations of a new research field, the objective of which will be to go beyond expertise and extend the scope of research in the areas of peacebuilding and human rights.

An innovative method

A new approach

Established within a cross-border and multidisciplinary perspective, the panel is equipped to put several levels of analysis into perspective, such as transitional justice, peace-building, individual reconstruction and the development of collective memory. Particular emphasis is placed on the situation in the Middle East.

Dialogue with policy-makers and practitioners

The final report and its recommendations will be widely disseminated with a view to informing and hopefully guiding public action. Throughout the project, political and social stakeholders, NGOs and international institutions will all be invited to comment on the initiative and its results and express their views on the subject.
