Peacebuilding and Statebuilding in the Horn of Africa: A Roundtable Discussion with Mr. Haavisto, Finland's Minister of Development (By Invitation Only)

This roundtable will convene top experts on peacebuilding, conflict resolution and development to discuss the issue of ensuring and facilitating inclusive development and transitions out of fragility in post-conflict settings. The situation in the Horn of Africa will be a case in point. Minister Haavisto, who co-chairs the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding, will address the situation and direction of developments in Eritrea, South Sudan and Somalia in particular. The roundtable will address the central challenges for the countries and international partners moving forward and address the question of how to encourage sustaining inclusivity in post-conflict settings. Lessons learned from these ongoing transitions, the role of minorities, gender issues (particularly under UNSCR 1325) and human rights will also be considered.

The event is being co-hosted by the Wilson Center's Global Europe Program.
