The Institute for Economics & Peace (IEP) will hold a Positive Peace workshop as a side event during the NERPS Conference in Thailand from 28 February to 3 March 2023. The workshop will equip students, researchers, and practitioners with a framework that will enable them to develop their research into real and practical projects. The workshop will consist of interactive activities that emphasise peer-to-peer learning and encourage everyone to engage.
IEP’s Positive Peace workshops aim to provide participants with a thorough understanding of the Pillars of Positive Peace and empower them to go back to their communities as agents of change.
Positive Peace provides a framework to understand and then address the multiple and complex challenges a community may face. Positive Peace is transformational in that it is a cross-cutting factor for progress, making it easier for businesses to sell, entrepreneurs and scientists to innovate, individuals to produce and governments to effectively regulate. Positive Peace is associated with many other social characteristics that are considered desirable, including stronger economic outcomes, higher resilience, better measures of wellbeing, levels of inclusiveness and environmental performance.
