ACCORD Hosts Peacebuilding Workshop in Liberia

on . Posted in Peacebuilding

From 25 – 26 June 2008 the African Peacebuilding Coordination Programme at ACCORD hosted a Peacebuilding Consultative Workshop in Monrovia, Liberia, for stakeholders to the peacebuilding process in Liberia.

The workshop brought together 32 representatives of the Government of Liberia, the United Nations Mission in Liberia, United Nations Country Team Agencies, Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), civil society, academia and the media, to discuss the peacebuilding process in Liberia. The workshop served to provide a review of the peacebuilding process to date, to identify the roles played and responsibilities held by different actors in the peacebuilding process, to identify challenges which were being encountered, and to generate recommendations for how these challenges could be overcome.

The workshop served to provide a space for peacebuilding actors to engage with one another and to learn from one another, to review the peacebuilding process, and to generating recommendations that will drive the peacebuilding process forwards in a sustainable way.
