In violent contexts involving various actors, which parties should engage in dialogue? Are negotiations with violent actors such as organized crime syndicates legitimate, or even useful? Who can coordinate mediation processes and with what methodology?

These questions will be the focus of the discussion with Achim Wennmann, PhD in International Relations and Senior Researcher at the Graduate Institute Geneva; Angélica Durán, PhD in Political Science, Brown University (USA); and Falko Ernst, Senior Analyst for Mexico at the International Crisis Group.

The session will take place on Tuesday 27 April and is part of the series entitled “Latin America: How to face violence from peacebuilding” organized by ICIP.

All debates in the series will stream live at the ICIP Youtube channel at 6 p.m (CET).
