On Monday, Jonathan Worboys of Public International Law & Policy Group (PILPG) spoke at 9 Bedford Row International on peace and ceasefire negotiations. He provided a short overview of ceasefire and peace negotiations in international law, going on to discuss his experiences advising Burmese ethnic nationalities on peace and ceasefire negotiations with the government.
PILPG is a global pro bono law firm that provides free legal assistance to states, governments, and non-state actors on the negotiation of peace agreements, the drafting of post-conflict constitutions, and the prosecution of war criminals. PILPG has worked closely with Burmese ethnic nationalities involved in armed conflicts with the government since 2010. PILPG has provided both substantive and technical advice to all ethnic nationality groups regarding ceasefire agreements and negotiation strategies, recently helping the Karen National Union to reach a “Code of Conduct” agreement with the Burmese government in September 2012.
