There is a wealth of knowledge about how states, organizations and individuals can contribute to conflict resolution without military means. Dialogue is one important tool for resolving and preventing violent conflicts. But how does it work in practice?

Andrew Ladley, Senior Advisor at the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue (HD) in Geneva, will speak about their initiatives aimed at establishing a conducive environment for resolving the conflict in Syria. He will discuss how HD continues to adapt its work to the evolving context on the ground, as the conflict in Syria becomes more complex.

Tahir Aziz, South Asia Programme Director at Conciliation Resources in London, will speak about their long-term work in Kashmir, creating opportunities for dialogue among diverse groups. He will reflect on how dialogue initiatives relate to political processes in contexts where formal negotiation processes are struggling to non-existent.

The seminar concludes with a joint discussion about similarities and differences regarding challenges, learnings and opportunities in supporting conflict resolution in Syria and Kashmir.
