This conference is intended to be inter-disciplinary and inter-practice, bringing policy makers and practitioners to the table in order to enable an exchange between those designing and implementing post-crisis interventions and those researching these situations. Lord Paddy Ashdown will be the keynote speaker for the conference.

Panels will be organised in such a way as to encourage discussion across disciplines and methodologies. The panels topics being suggested are the following: the culture of reconstruction; accountability and stakeholders; the politics of space and security; reconstructing culture; identity, religion and heritage; mourning and memorialisation; ownership and capacity building; governing affect: Panels will be organised in such a way as to encourage discussion across disciplines and approaches, focusing on the following proposed topics: truth, guilt and legitimacy.
