In Africa, as you know, “Peace-building” efforts include a range of
challenges such as, assisting with elections, setting up a legal system,
disarmament of former soldiers, reforming police and military forces and
other efforts. The main point is to, through conflict resolution, support the
country’s reconstruction and prevent it from falling back into violence.
This seems easy enough but, when you take into account the
logistical nightmares that these tasks involve it becomes awfully
overwhelming. Without the most up-to-date knowledge and
information about lessons learned and successes achieved without
which this becomes almost impossible.
To ensure that you are not caught in the dark – attend the 3rd
Annual Peacekeeping Africa – 2008. The event now offers more case
studies, international participation, panel discussions and networking
opportunities. With more than 200 delegates, Peacekeeping Africa also
includes specialised streams – allowing you to select the session with
the correct level of maturity for you – building on 2007’s event.
This event will enable increased peace building capacity in Africa by
bringing together various military experts, think tanks, humanitarians,
policymakers and other professionals.
At Peacekeeping Africa we have recruited those that are the leaders
in peacekeeping, reconstruction and rehabilitation from all over Africa
addressing the subjects that you need to know more about. This year’s
programme will focus upon:
• Evaluating the current state of peacekeeping, security and terrorism
in Africa
• Maintaining the balance between ordinary policing and conventional
warfare when conducting operations of counter insurgency
• Lessons learnt during peacekeeping operations in Africa
• Establishing the role of non-government organisations in
peacekeeping operations in Africa
• Implementing successful post conflict rehabilitation strategies
• Managing your peacekeeping operations through effective project
management and logistics planning
• Overcoming challenges of interoperability
Last year Peacekeeping Africa delivered essential information to over
120 professionals. Take a look at www.peacekeepingafrica.com to
