Peace, conflict resolution and mediation work in Africa
Prof. Brian Williams worked in Africa (Burundi, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Uganda, Tanzania, Liberia, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland and South Sudan), to train peace educators in conflict resolution and to train mediators. In Uganda, Prof. Williams assisted the Uganda Human Rights Commission to create a conflict early warning system for that country. Each of the engagements in these countries requires extensive political and contextual understanding of the realities in these countries.
Centre for Conflict Resolution
Prof. Brian Williams has been actively involved with the Centre for Conflict Resolution (CCR) for the past 25 years and currently, the CCR is a client to W-LLM.
Africa peace work and political contextualisation
Prof. Williams’s work in Africa has required him to understand the political dynamics across the continent especially in the field of peace, governance systems and security studies. His knowledge of peace and security in Southern Africa is used extensively by a number of clients. One of Prof. Williams’s clients is active in 7 Southern African countries. This company constantly needs to understand the dynamics within the Southern African Development Community (SADC). Prof. Williams also offers training to political groups, business leaders, trade union leaders and social activists who need to understand how to practically engage in their spheres of work.
