It has been a phenomenal few months for INCORE. We have hosted a range of high profile events, including an International Peace Conference, as well as pioneered some new peacebuilding initiatives such as the Derry Proposals for a Colombian Peace.
Students of our MSc. in Applied Peace and Conflict studies graduated in July 2013, and we ran our 14th International Summer School. We are also proud to announce a £1.2 archive project to host accounts of the conflict in and about Northern Ireland.

DERRY PROPOSALS FOR A COLOMBIAN PEACE
[DERRY PROPOSALS FOR A COLOMBIAN PEACE]
On September 4th 2012, Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos announced the signing of what was referred to as A General Agreement Towards the Conflict's Ending. Negotiations have subsequently followed in La Habana, Cuba.
As a contribution to this process, INCORE and the local Rotary club, under the guidance of INCORE Marie Curie Fellow Ariel Sanchez, hosted a series of discussions and workshop with local practitioners and members of Colombian civil society to draft the 'Derry Proposals for Colombian Peace'. The proposals are structured around the five key themes that form part of the Colombian negotiation agenda: an end to hostilities, victims' rights, political participation, land reform and drug-trafficking in Colombia. The final proposals were presented to Juan Manuel Uribe, Deputy Head of Mission, Colombian Embassy London who accepted them and guaranteed they would be delivered to the Colombian President and negotiating team.

14th INCORE INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL
[14th INCORE INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL]
On 17-21 June INCORE hosted its 14th International Summer School. The School offered a unique opportunity to create links between theory, practice and policy, and was attended by some 40 practitioners, students and global peacemakers from some 10 countries. Special attention was given to how the experience and research of both practitioners and academics can impact upon policy makers within the field of conflict resolution, peacemaking, peacebuilding and reconciliation.
Two specific modules were offered. To mark the City of Culture events Professor Brandon Hamber and Dr Stephen Ryan ran a module on Culture and Peacebuilding, which included sessions on theatre, art, mutli-media and sport. Professor Gillian Robinson and Dr Brendan Lynn ran a module entitled Peacemaking an Peacebuilding in Northern Ireland, and this module included a group of 13 students from Utah Valley University. The Victims Commissioner, Kathrym Stone, OBE, gave the Annual Summer School lecture.

NEW £1.2 ARCHIVE OF ACCOUNTS OF THE CONFLICT
[NEW £1.2 ARCHIVE OF ACCOUNTS OF THE CONFLICT]
The University of Ulster is to establish a £1.2m digital archive project at its Magee campus.
Called 'Accounts of the Conflict' the project will be housed at the International Conflict Research Institute (INCORE), and will offer long-term storage and preservation of stories related to life in Northern Ireland and the border region during the period of the conflict.
Organisations, groups and individuals will be able to deposit digital copies of stories with the new archive.
The Accounts of the Conflict project has received £948,000 from the European Union's PEACE lll programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body, with the balance being supplied from University resources.
The two-year project will create three new positions, and supports the involvement of nine INCORE staff members with expertise in story-telling, resource building, archiving and project administration.
