The research seminar
The research seminar will consider the findings and implications of a study into the interplay of human rights and conflict resolution in the practice of civil society organisations and independent state institutions. While it has been recognised that human rights, justice, conflict and peace are closely linked, for many years the two bodies of theory and practice have remained surprisingly separate in conceptual and practical terms. The study has sought to counteract this on-going disconnect between human rights and conflict resolution and contribute to improved practice, by examining how the relationship between these fields plays out in various concrete contexts, based on practical examples of actors and situations in South Africa, Northern Ireland, Zimbabwe and Nepal (with occasional reference to examples from elsewhere). The study’s findings relate to three themes: lenses, fluidity, and complexity. In this context the notion of framing will also be discussed and the possibility of remaking existing frames. The methodological approach adopted may also emerge as a topic for discussion, as the study constitutes an exercise in reflective practice, blending lived experience and social investigation.
