Ensuring the perspectives and priorities of conflict-affected communities inform peace and peacebuilding – sharing research from South Sudan

The Network for Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding is pleased to invite for this event on South Sudan held by Oxfam IBIS.

Oxfam IBIS’ Peacebuilding Programme has a particular focus on supporting and enabling inclusive peace processes. This means ensuring women and young people are able to both meaningfully engage and influence a process. It also means that peace processes should be informed by a wider set of perspectives and priorities from the communities affected by conflict. As part of Oxfam IBIS’ Peacebuilding Programme, earlier this year we commissioned a series of perception surveys on peace and social cohesion relating to the South Sudan peace process. The survey draws on close to 700 respondents’ perspectives, from both Government and Opposition-held areas inside South Sudan, as well as refugee communities in Uganda. The survey will serve as a key baseline both for our programmatic work, and for Oxfam’s advocacy/influencing engagements calling for more inclusive peacebuilding processes, including in the context of the post-agreement phase we are now in. To coincide with the 5th Anniversary of the outbreak of the most recent conflict in South Sudan, the Network for Conflict Prevention and Peacebuilding will host a briefing spotlighting the findings from this recent survey, as well as other recent research, which will, in turn, inform a discussion regarding possible trajectories going forward.

Youth and Gender
  • Date and time: Late 2018

In December 2015, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted Resolution 2250 on Youth, Peace, and Security. As an initial step, the Resolution called for the UN Secretary-General to undertake a Progress Study focused on the positive contribution of youth to peace processes and conflict resolution, in order to shape recommendations at local, national, regional, and international levels. A half-day seminar will be organized in late 2018 in an effort to draw on this landmark report and shape ongoing and planned engagements by the Danish Government and Danish NGOs engaged in peacebuilding and working with youth.
