Emerging powers and peacebuilding in fragile states


New and emerging actors are becoming increasingly visible in development scene, including in conflict-affected countries. While their interests, capacities, and resources are diverse, the presence of emerging actors brings both opportunities and challenges.

This workshop at NYU will take an in-depth look at evolving dynamics regarding conflict and fragility in Africa, and at new trends in development and peacebuilding responses.

Evidence from research conducted by SAIIA and the Center on International Cooperation (CIC) on Turkey in Somalia and South Africa in the Democratic Republic of Congo will be drawn on for this workshop. Participants will analyse the political and economic dimensions of South-South Cooperation (SSC) in conflict-affected countries, as well as efforts aimed at measuring the effectiveness of SSC.
