This roundtable brings together researchers, activists and NGO representatives to discuss the intimate interconnection between peace and development, and to explore issues such as inequalities, peace and conflict. The panel also represents a step towards a larger event that will bring together differently positioned actors under the broad umbrella of development and peace. These interactions are pivotal for deepening mutual understanding between civil society activities and research praxis in order to find synenergies for further cooperation.
