How can business support or hinder the process of peace-building after armed conflict? This panel discussion looks at the role of the private sector in countries emerging from conflict. Academics, practitioners and company representatives will engage with questions of corporate complicity and accountability in transitional justice settings, as well as discuss the way in which companies may contribute positively to creating peace.
