Resources, Conflict, and Opportunities for Stable Peace: Africa 2015-2025
October 13, 2015
In the African armed conflict literature, resources, particularly resource contestation is blamed for most armed conflicts in the continent. Scholarship, has therefore, focussed on exposing the resource-conflict link with little success of altering the African conflict landscape. As Karl Marx argues, "philosophers have succeeded in interpreting the world; the point is to change it." This workshop brings together experts to explore ways of moving beyond the discuss of causation to the praxis of disconnecting resources from the politics of violence in hope of eliminating conflicts associated with resources.
