Friday 29 July 2016 marked the second and final day of the Legacy of Armed Conflicts workshop being co-hosted by GovInn and GIGA German Institute of Global and Area Studies.
The second day started with two panels discussing veterans, rebels and militia, as well as violence, crime and reconciliation that occurs post conflict. Before lunch, Professor Gilbert Khadiagala gave the second keynote for the workshop, speaking on the relationship between peace building and nation building in Africa. His presentation drew quite a crowd!

The panel included Professor Annette Seegers from the University of Cape Town, Professor Brian Raftopoulos from the University of Zimbabwe and Doctor Hugo van der Merwe from he Centre for the Study of Violence and Reconciliation in South Africa, who discussed the challenges faced by peace building in Southern Africa.
