Open seminar on UN Peace Operations and Rule of Law Assistance
The seminar is open to the public and takes place on September 17.
Invitation to the Folke Bernadotte Day
UN Peace Operations and Rule of Law Assistance – Past, Present, Future
This year’s United Nations high-level meeting of the 67th Session of the General Assembly will discuss the rule of law at the national and international levels and agree on a forward looking agenda and a programme of action to strengthen the rule of law
In light of the high-level meeting, the seminar focuses on past, present and future challenges to UN’s commitment to the rule of law. The aim of the seminar is to inspire debate and discussion on the UN’s commitment to the rule of law and how to enhance and extend good practices, innovations and accumulated experience in order to bridge critical capacity-gaps and encompass a broader range of rule of law areas in peacekeeping and peacebuilding.
The new research report on UN Peace Operations in Africa, UN Peace Operations and Rule of Law Assistance in Africa: Data, Patterns and Questions for the Future, will also be presented at the seminar.
Where: Folke Bernadotte Academy, Sverigesalen, Drottning Kristinas väg 37, Stockholm
