PAST EVENT: Negotiating with Violent Criminal Groups

The Institute for Integrated Transitions (IFIT) is pleased to announce Negotiating with Violent Criminal Groups: Lessons and Guidelines from Global Practice, the latest webinar within our 10 Peacebuilding Innovations series. 

Negotiations with violent criminal groups – such as mafias, cartels, gangs and pirates – occur more often than imagined. Yet, most of the attempts are unknown, whether because they were secretly conducted, publicly denied, or both.

In this webinar, IFIT’s Executive Director will discuss key findings from IFIT’s ground-breaking global study of the subject. The study represents the most diverse set of negotiations with violent criminal groups ever examined in one place.

Date: Thursday, March 30 from 4:00pm-4:30pm Barcelona time

Moderator: Luisa Meléndez, Research Assistant, IFIT

Panellist: Mark Freeman, Executive Director, IFIT
