Central African Republic (New York)

, 9:00am –

The Conflict Prevention and Peace Forum, in partnership with MINUSCA and the Mediation Support Unit of the Department of Political Affairs, convened an expert brainstorming on the Central African Republic (CAR) to analyze what elements of truth, justice, reparations, reintegration, and non-repetition from the Colombia experience could inform proposals for CAR. 

The objectives of the discussion were to share ideas, and to think creatively about the mechanisms and approaches that Colombia used to facilitate compromises with the FARC, and whether the integrated programme that the two sides were able to agree upon holds any lessons for the Central African context.
