Contributors and audiences will sit together and workshop ideas for «a way forward». Based on discussions in the two previous sessions of that track, they will identify maximum three (!) key points (i.e. future tasks, solutions, challenges and/or opportunities) for creating new arenas to productively engage with conflict in cities. These points will be presented to policy makers in the subsequent panel debate.

12:00 –13:00: LUNCH 

13:00 – 14:30: Present table talks to policy makers, followed by panel debate.

The panel debate will be led by professor Per Martin Norheim-Martinsen, Vice Rector R&D OsloMet. First, track convenors will present the key points to policy makers and activists, as well as the audience.

Then, Norheim-Martinsen asks the panel participants:

  1. Which of the twelve key points for creating new arenas to productively engage with conflict in cities do you find most significant?
  2. Norheim-Martinsen will challenge the panel with remaining or new key points
  3. The audience will challenge the panel with remaining or new key points

14:30: Fridaydrinks!
