Josie Lianna Kaye gives a talk titled ‘How to maximize business contributions to peace? Insights from a practitioner-researcher’ at the 2018 OxPeace Conference.
Josie Lianna Kaye is the Director and Founder of TrustWorks Global, a London-based company which prevents and manages natural resource-related conflicts in high-risk settings.
Drawing upon her experience as a researcher-practitioner, Josie’s intervention will seek to explore insights and lessons associated with three inter-linked key questions: first, how can multi-nationals in high-risks contexts prevent conflict and ‘sustain peace’? Second, what role does the United Nations – and other multi-lateral entities - have to play in enabling and/or supporting businesses to play such a role? Third, how can research in this domain catalyse a relationship between businesses and UN actors that fosters more constructive contributions to conflict prevention and sustaining peace?
