As we marked the 20th anniversary of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement, Peace and Beyond brought together practitioners, academics, policy makers and young leaders from the UK, Ireland, South Africa, Lebanon, the Western Balkans and Colombia.

Conference aims

Through a series of lectures, plenary sessions, workshops, site visits and cultural events we: 

  • engaged and connected participants in an international dialogue in an open and inclusive space 
  • inspired innovative thinking, research and practice among academics, policy makers and practitioners in the field of peacebuilding
  • activated a new generation to build peace and stability worldwide.

This year Peace and Beyond was organised by the British Council in partnership with Queen’s University Belfast and Ulster University, in association with the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building.
