    The African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD), in partnership with the Centre for African Peace and Conflict Resolution (CAPCR) at California State University, Sacramento, have published a report on the proceedings of the Fourth International Africa Peace and Conflict Resolution Conference. The symposium, which was co-hosted by ACCORD and CAPCR, was convened under the theme ‘Alternative dispute resolution and peace studies in Africa: Lessons, prospects and challenges’, and held in Johannesburg, South Africa, on the 25 and 26 July 2014.

    The event provided an important platform for African, European and American academics and practitioners working in the fields of conflict and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) to share knowledge and discuss the theory and practice of ADR in Africa.

    Specifically, the forum allowed presenters to examine and discuss the various applications of ADR in terms of, inter alia, facilitated dialogue, mediation, negotiation and arbitration; as well as the efficacy and applicability of traditional African conflict resolution mechanisms within this paradigm.
