Poster session: The puzzle of peace – towards inclusive development in fragile contexts

In collaboration with the Conflict Research Network – West Africa (CORN West Africa), this conference poster session is focused on 'overcoming the barriers towards achieving Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 in Africa'.

This collaboration provides an opportunity for six promising African-based scholars researching different forms of armed conflict and political violence in the region to present their research, receive feedback from colleagues, and network with a global community of scholars.

Additionally, three early-career scholars from the UNU-WIDER network have been invited to present their research in the poster session.  

The poster sessions will take place in the afternoon coffee breaks during both days of the conference 16-17 May between 15:30-16:00 (UTC+3) in the lobby of the conference venue. The posters will also be displayed throughout the duration of the conference. 

During the poster sessions, the author of each poster will stand by their poster and be available to answer questions and discuss their study. 

Presentations will be informal in nature, and attendees are welcome to walk around and familiarize themselves with the topics being presented.
