The world sees between 20-50 armed conflicts each year. Today, active conflict persists in Ukraine, Afghanistan, Syria, Ethiopia, and myriad other countries. The effects of related violence are traumatic for residents and destabilizing for states, and tend to linger long after active conflict subsides. Meanwhile, the number of people who have been forcibly displaced from their homes due to violence, instability, and other powerful forces–such as climate change–is higher than ever before. Conflict and displacement undermine efforts by governments and NGOs to provide basic services, share information, build trust, and promote sustainable economic growth–particularly in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) which, despite bearing the brunt of these challenges, have limited capacity to respond.

On Thursday, October 13th, CEGA’s annual Evidence to Action (E2A) symposium, “Confronting Conflict and Displacement in a Changed World,” will showcase the effectiveness and limitations of policy solutions designed to promote stability, security and resilience in LMICs. Through a series of research presentations and panels of policymakers and practitioners, we’ll explore timely questions such as:

  • How do countries effectively achieve peace, stability, and security after a conflict?
  • Which groups do citizens trust and rely on to preserve public safety and economic security? What role does misinformation play in eroding this trust?
  • How can governments and NGOs effectively deliver essential services to the forcibly displaced?
  • How is climate change driving new types of conflict and displacement, and what can we do about it?
An agenda, registration form, and list of speakers will be available on this web page soon. We hope you’ll join us, and spread the word!
