Post-Conflict Peacebuilding: Civil Society Perspectives on Prospects, Challenges and Way Forward
On June 30, 2009, IPI and the Permanent Mission of Uganda to the UN co-hosted a lunchtime policy discussion with civil society representatives on the recently released Secretary-General’s Report on Peacebuilding in the Immediate Aftermath of Conflict.
This informal discussion provided an opportunity for members of the Security Council, the Peacebuilding Commission, and other key delegations and UN officials to hear civil society perspectives on the Secretary-General’s report. In anticipation of Uganda’ presidency of the Security Council in July, when the report would be taken up, Ambassador Ruhakan Rugunda, Permanent Representative of Uganda to the UN opened the discussion by expressing a strong desire to hear civil society reactions to the report.
The speakers — Dr. Paul Mikov, Director and UN Representative of World Vision, and Andrew Tomlinson, Director and UN Representative of the Quaker UN Office — suggested several ideas to take the report’s recommendations forward within the UN and beyond. They also highlighted several key issues they felt the report did not adequately address, including community recovery and reconciliation, and transitional justice.
