Platform’s 4th Annual Conference

This day creatively engaged the network to jointly explore inputs for the Platform’s substantive agenda for the upcoming year. We did so by drawing on international developments and emerging challenges for security and rule of law in conflict-affected states as well as by capitalizing on the results of previous Platform activities.

The Knowledge Platform is a network of relevant communities of practice. It includes experts, policymakers, practitioners, researchers and the business leaders from security and rule of law sectors to address issues in fragile and conflict-affected contexts. The Platform provides a meeting space – offline as well as online – for professionals to stimulate intellectual discussion, share experiences, exchange lessons learned and discuss novel insights. In this way, the Platform strives to contribute to the evidence base of current policies and the effectiveness of collaboration and programming while simultaneously facilitating the generation of new knowledge.
