In the last decade and a half, Australia has become increasingly involved
with a range of fragile states seeking to transition from conflict to a
stable developing society with institutionalized non-violent political
processes. This international conference will bring together a range of
academics, civil society representatives, policy makers, practitioners and
NGO participants to analyse the lessons learnt internationally about this
most challenging and important issue.  This year's conference aims to build
upon the success of an international workshop on a similar theme held in
2010, which attracted participants from civil societies in various parts of
the Asia Pacific, the Government of Timor-Leste, several Australian
universities, the Australian Parliament, the Australian Federal Police the ,
Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Australian Defence Force and
international development organisations.
