Network of Civil Society Organizations presents result of priority reforms for stability widespread in the regions
The opening session of the workshop was chaired by Tiniguena Executive Secretary Miguel de Barros, President of the Guinean League of Human Rights, Augusto Mário, and Yasmine Cabral representing the United Nations Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau.
“Reforms in Guinea-Bissau were identified in different sectors as well as their root causes and their solutions. As an international partner, we are concerned with ensuring political stability and hence sustainable development based on the pillars of peace, defense, security and economic development. We think that reforms are not essentially a role of the state or politicians. They also involve civil society as a balancing element for the redefining state model process, which has contributed new forms and content to meet the needs of the population, ”said Yasmine Cabral from UNIOGBIS Human Rights Section.
This work fits in with the presentation of the conclusions and systematization of the results of the dissemination work in the 8 administrative regions of the country and the results of 5 workshops held in Bissau with the purpose of collecting contributions from society organizations on priority reforms, namely Security Sector Reform (SSR), Justice Sector Reform, Political Party Framework Law Reform, Electoral Law Reform and Guinea-Bissau State Reform.
The Guinea-Bissau Political Dialogue and National Reconciliation project is funded by the United Nations Peacebuilding Fund in Guinea-Bissau (PBF) through the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and supported by The UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS) and being implemented by a consortium formed by Tiniguena - “This Land is Ours”, the Guinean League of Human Rights and the Faculty of Bissau.
