Money Makers as Peace Makers? – The Role of Business in Conflict Zones
Private business actors can potentially contribute to post-conflict reconstruction and peacebuilding, while at the same time posing a risk to exacerbating violent conflict. The swisspeace Annual Conference 2011 brings together representatives from the private, public and non-governmental sectors to explore how business can engage in conflict transformation processes. In a keynote speech and on three panels, different questions will be discussed: What positive and negative roles can companies play in peace processes? What are the determinants, advantages or disadvantages of collective business action? How can voluntary business initiatives be integrated into broader peace building efforts?
