The Chatham House Under 35s Forum and the UN Association's Young Professionals Network are holding a panel discussion on building sustainable peace in post-conflict situations. The panel will address the impact of peace on the pursuit of justice, and vice versa, and the challenge of balancing justice, reconciliation and nation-building after the end of a conflict.

Juan Méndez is a former Special Adviser to the UN Secretary-General on the Prevention of Genocide and Alexander Loden worked in West Africa on transitional justice initiatives between 2003 and 2008.
