Ottawa Dialogue’s Spring 2021 Practitioner Piece: Inclusion & Track Two

What does it mean to be inclusive in peacemaking? Could Track Two serve as a driver for inclusion? Within the field of peacemaking, debate remains ongoing over contemporary understandings of inclusivity and what this means for peacemaking. Moreover, there are questions as to whether or not the pressures to meet inclusivity goals might have the effect of requiring actions that may be against the best interests of a dialogue.

The Ottawa Dialogue hopes that this brief newsletter feature will serve as a steppingstone in exploring both sides of this discussion and framing the ongoing debate on inclusivity in Track Two and mediation efforts more broadly.
