Berghof Peace Support is pleased to announce the release of the workshop report “Mediating Peace with Proscribed Armed Groups”, which summarises discussions and recommendations from a policy workshop held in Brussels in October 2010. Co-organised by Berghof Peace Support and Conciliation Resources with funding from the Joseph Rowntree Charitable Trust, the aim of this workshop was to initiate a debate about the direct and indirect implications of EU counter-terrorism legislation on peace processes with non-state armed groups, and to identify possible steps forward in order to mitigate the counter-productive impact of blacklisting on conflict resolution and to enhance the EU’s mediation capacity. The workshop was attended by high-level EU officials, mediators and civil society experts. BCR was represented by Véronique Dudouet who compiled this report together with a team from Conciliation Resources.
