The “New Geopolitics of Peace Operations II” initiative is conducted by SIPRI in partnership with FES, with support from the Foreign Ministries of Finland and the Netherlands. The overall objective of this initiative is to provide insights into the diverse African perspectives on peace operations in Africa and the views of African and external actors on their required cooperation, as well as stimulate international debate on the main challenges. The findings of the final report are largely based on five regional dialogues in Africa and a global dialogue meeting in which also external actors participated. It aspires to contribute to ongoing initiatives to strengthening the global-regional partnership between the UN and Africa.
At the panel discussion, findings of the initiative, and particularly the pathways to improve future collaboration between African and external actors, and to strengthen their mutual understanding will be presented.
