Second global meeting of the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding

Does peacebuilding bring peace? Fragile states and donors met in Monrovia to discuss what works and what doesn’t.

Have the populations of fragile states and countries affected by conflict benefited from the money, effort and time devoted to peacebuilding and statebuilding these past years? Are they any nearer to achieving the Millennium Development Goals? What lessons can these states and the international community as a whole learn from recent experiences, both positive and negative?

The second global meeting of the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding, held in Monrovia on 15-16 June 2011, took a hard look at the role of developing and developed country governments, aid donors and civil society in building sustainable peace and developing capable and accountable states.
