About UR’s Center for Conflict Management Research Seminar

For the last five years, the Center for Conflict Management has convened monthly Speaker’s Series / Research Seminars with a view to contribute to the culture of research, policy dialogue and learning that also allows networking. 

Through its Speaker’s Series / Research Seminars, CCM aspires to strengthen the evidence base available to government, civil society, and development partners regarding the issues of peace, conflict and security facing Rwanda and the region. The themes are chosen designed to support the Rwandan Government in achieving it’s 2020 Vision - economic growth and full employment, social protection for the vulnerable and improved governance.  CCM’s emphasis on building a learning community reflects UR’s belief that the development of knowledge on the issues of peace, conflict and security requires interaction between scholars, policymakers and other actors who can provide practical experiences and challenges different perspectives, and analytical frameworks.

The guest speakers are leading specialists on their respective topic, namely: government; the United Nations and the society at large.
