Peace Economy

Gernika Gogoratuz, together with other organizations like ehuGune (EHU/UPV), REAS Euskadi and Economistas sin Fronteras– and with the help of the Dirección de Víctimas y Derechos Humanos of the Basque Government, wanted to deepen the knowledge about the concept of Peace Economy. Therefore we started a four yearlong investigation (2016-2020) to contribute to the evolution of Peace and conflict studies.

The Laboratory is a space of reflection and dialogue with two goals: Collecting different approaches and designing a new concept of Peace Economy as well as offering a space for co-creation following the theory of the quadruple helix (government, society, business and academic research) to realize proposals to improve the performance concerning the rights and duties of operators with influence. We see us in the obligation to contribute together with all the parties involved to these debates of Peace and Conflict Research, Development Studies and International Cooperation.

III Laboratory of Peace Economy, Human Rights and Basque Companies

A room for debating between the before mentioned sectors “government, society, business and academic research” about the equality of contribution in Peace Economy and its influence on human rights in Basque companies and authorities.
