Description

Mind the Gap: Can Regional Intergovernmental Organisations Bridge the Policy Gap in Conflict Prevention and Peace-Building?

Focusing on the role of regional inter-governmental organizations (RIGOs) in peace building and conflict prevention, the session aims to bring together examples from around the world to

(a) inform and strengthen the capacity of RIGOs for policy formulation and implementation in the field of conflict prevention

(b) bridge the policy gap between various stakeholders, primarily global institutions and RIGOs, and RIGOs and local CSOs, and

(c) initiate a discussion on the subject that continues beyond the conference session.

To anchor the discussion, the UN-WB report, "Pathways for Peace," and other recent global frameworks for peace, will be used during the session to highlight the role of RIGOs in conflict prevention and peacebuilding.
