Peace Agreement Training Series

PILPG’s Peace Agreement Training Series seeks to share knowledge and develop the capacity of practitioners involved in negotiating and drafting peace agreements.  The Series is organized into sessions that focus on negotiating and drafting specific components of peace agreements, such as ceasefires, power sharing, transitional justice, security sector reform, state structure, and a state’s new legal framework. The Training Series is undertaken in cooperation with DLA Piper, New Perimeter, and the USAID’s office of Conflict Management and Mitigation (CMM). To request more information, please E-mail PILPG at info@pilpg.org

Toolkits and Handbooks

PILPG has developed the following toolkits and handbooks to manage, share, and develop knowledge in the fields of peace negotiations, post-conflict constitution drafting, and war crimes prosecutions:

  • Peace Negotiations Toolkit: This toolkit helps parties, mediators, and practitioners better prepare to negotiate and implement peace agreements.  The toolkit includes negotiation simulations, a Peace Agreement Drafter’s Handbook, Quick Guides, a primer on earned sovereignty, and Peace Negotiations Watch.
  • Post-Conflict Constitution Toolkit:  This toolkit helps parties, mediators, and practitioners better prepare for drafting and implementing post-conflict constitutions.  It contains negotiation simulations, a Post-Conflict Constitution Drafter’s Handbook, and Quick Guides.
  • War Crimes Prosecution Toolkit: This toolkit helps states and tribunals better prepare for the prosecution of war criminals and to promote academic discourse regarding war crimes.  The toolkit includes the War Crimes Research Portal, the Grotian Moment blog, the War Crimes Tribunal Drafter’s Handbook, and the published proceedings of an annual conference on war-crimes-related issues.
  • Rebel’s Guide to Negotiations

Negotiation Simulations

PILPG drafts and runs negotiation simulations for current conflict areas around the globe in order to train parties in negotiating techniques, surface critical issues in each conflict, test new approaches to conflicts, and assist in the development of innovative diplomatic solutions to armed conflicts.  Following each simulation, PILPG drafts and distributes a Lessons Learned Report, which highlights key lessons that may be applicable during the upcoming negotiations.

Roundtables, Lessons Learned Discussions and Policy Planning Reports

In order to facilitate and promote best practices and lessons learned, PILPG hosts Roundtables and Lessons Learned Discussions.  The Roundtables are designed to draw constructive attention to particular aspects of a conflict or transition.  Generally the Roundtables feature a keynote speaker, often one of PILPG’s pro bonoclients, and are attended by local stakeholders, academics, and policy makers.  Likewise, the Lessons Learned Discussions promote collaborative and open dialogue between the stakeholders in various conflicts and post-conflict transitions.
