Mediterranean and Sub-Saharan Africa concentrates episodes of extreme violence and sources of potential conflicts and geopolitical upheavals. The aim of the conference was to study these violences, from local standpoints to global forms, as well as the means to escape from it.

International panel for exiting violence 2

The International Panel on Exiting Violence (IPEV) brings together an international community of researchers in order to construct “exiting violence” as a new field of study. Composed of thematic working groups, this panel aims to produce both knowledge and recommendations for policy makers and civil society. Launched in 2017, the first phase of the Panel produced a report that will be published in the second half of 2019.

The second phase of the Panel focuses its activities on the Middle East and North Africa, with developments towards sub-Saharan Africa. New institutional partnerships are being created with the southern Mediterranean countries to facilitate renewed working groups. Young researchers from these countries will be able to
benefit from mobility grants.

Ultimately, a new report will be published at the end of the second phase to present the results of each working group, in the form of a scientific summary accompanied by policy recommendations.
