Organised by the Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa and Oxfam

Local CSOs are at the forefront in responding to the needs of the millions of civilians caught up in violent conflict. Where international actors struggle most, partnerships with local CSOs, who better understand the context and complex conflict dynamics, allow for life-saving resources to reach the people who need them most in the most appropriate manner.

A panel discussion to hear findings from the report and fresh insights on the realities and dilemmas faced by CSOs in situations of violent conflicts and the role the international community can play. For more information or to register click here.
