Restoring human security to conflict affected states in Africa
Committee Room 16, House of Commons
As debates around what replaces the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) intensify, attention is increasingly being focused on how best to help those fragile states that are furthest away from meeting any of the current targets by 2015.
This timely meeting convened jointly by the Africa All Party Parliamentary Group (Africa APPG) and the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) will examine how successful current approaches to improving systems of governance, peacekeeping operations and security sector reform have been in helping to restoring stability and prosperity to conflict affected states in Africa.
Drawing on fresh insights from a recent report from the APPG Africa, Security and Africa: An Update and new IDS research, Piecing it Together: Post-Conflict Security in an Africa of Networked, Multilevel Governance undertaken in Sierra Leone, Democratic Republic of Congo, Mali, Côte d'Ivoire and Somalia, our expert panel will lead the discussion on what more needs to be done at the local, national, regional and international level to improve the wellbeing of people living in African countries affected by violent conflict.
