A University of Liberia Professor of Economics is expected to address a world “Peace Agreement and Durable Peace In Africa” conference scheduled for next Monday in Durban, South Africa. Prof. Richard Panton will deliver a titled paper: “A Study of Peace Agreements In Africa-The Case of Liberia.”
He is among several academicians (scholars), conflict resolution experts, advocates, politicians, business executives and many more. The world conference is been organized by the African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes (ACCORD) in Durban, South Africa.
The conference which aims at bringing together the commissioned authors for the Peace Agreements edited volume will focus on the trouble spots whether past and current on the continent, including Ivory Coast, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Burundi. Others are Somalia, Sudan, Tchad, DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo), Mozambique and Angola.
The volume seeks to engage with the experiences of Peace Agreements in Africa with the aim to understand why some peace agreements fail, while others succeed and how this impacts on the attainment of durable peace.
