Conflict and Development in Fragile States: Global and Regional Perspectives
Date: Thursday 26 November 2009
Venue: Lecture Theatre 2,
Hedley Bull Centre, ANU
Time: 9.45am - 4pm


There is growing awareness of the dynamic relationships between armed
violence and social and economic development. Nevertheless, understanding of
appropriate 'policy' and 'programming' responses are still in their infancy
including in countries emerging from protracted bouts of collective violence
such as Timor-Leste. ActionAid and the Small Arms Survey are working
in Timor-Leste and elsewhere to identify innovative and evidence-based
approaches to prevention and reduction.

On November 26, guest panellists from ActionAid, The Australian National
the Small Arms Survey and other key agencies will review the nexus between
conflict and development at the global and regional
level before discussing the Timor-Leste Armed Violence Assessment (TLAVA).
The seminar will
enable scholars, policy makers and development practitioners to review
practical entry-points for
addressing the many facets of violence and its impact on development, from
the global to the local levels.

Speakers and panel members include:
Dr Bina D'Costa - The Australian National University
Professor Keith Krause - Small Arms Survey
Cate Buchanan - Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue
Bijay Kumar - ActionAid International
Emergencies and Conflict team

The Timor Leste Armed Violence Assessment is an Australian Government,
AusAID initiative.
Lunch will be provided for registered attendees.
