The impact of organized crime and corruption on peacebuilding processes is a subject of increasing international concern. As organized crime has become globalized, it has come to effect a wide range of activities, including the maintenance of peace and security. In some negotiated transitions, the influence of organized crime on stability, governance, and development is a reality that the international community must contend with during conflict resolution and peacebuilding efforts.
As much remains to be understood about the relationship between organized crime, corruption and peacebuilding, it is important to explore how international organizations and key stakeholders can intervene to help eliminate, or reduce the impact of, criminal agendas. This is at the centre of the seventh installment of the Centre for Security Governance’s eSeminar series on “Contemporary Debates on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding”, presented in collaboration with the Balsillie School of International Affairs and Wilfrid Laurier University’s Department of Global Studies. The distinguished panelists each gave brief introductory remarks, followed by an open Q&A period where participants were able to engage the panel directly.
- Geoff Burt is the Executive Director of the Centre for Security Governance (CSG).
- Dr Sasha Jesperson, Director of the Centre for the Study of Modern Slavery at St Mary’s University Twickenham.
- John de Boer, Managing Director of SecDev Group.

In a response to women's voices in the field, the Women Peacemakers Program initiated a pilot Training of Trainers (ToT) cycle for 19 male peace activists from 17 different countries in 2009 / 2010, entitled "Overcoming Violence: Exploring Masculinities, Violence, and Peacebuilding".
Upon returning home from that first training block, each of the male participants was linked to a female support person ("ally") from his own region and/or country who supported him in the development and implementation of his follow-up plan.
The ToT focused on the theory and practice of active nonviolence; facilitation and group dynamics; participatory teaching methods; conceptualizing gender and diversity; leadership; women's rights; important international instruments such as United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCR) 1325, 1820, 1888 and 1889; an introduction to and analysis of masculinities; and lobbying and advocacy.
