Nuovo programma di peacebuilding in Sud Caucaso di NP

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 9 aprile 2012

Nonviolent Peaceforce sta attualmente aprendo un nuovo ufficio in Georgia, nel villaggio di Nikozi nella regione di Shida Kartli. Si tratta di una zona ai margini del territorio conteso del Sud Ossezia nella quale si rileva un senso di diffusa insicurezza, una mutua diffidenza e una quasi totale assenza di comunicazioni tra i villaggi georgiani e le comunita’ del Sud Ossezia. Tale situazione, oltre che dovuta a differenze culturali, é soprattuto il portato di lungo conflitto che continua a influenzare profondamente l’intera area.
Sin dal 2010 NP é stata invitata dalle organizzazioni della societá civile locale ad eplorare la possibilitá di realizzare un progetto di sicurezza civile all’interno dei territoriti contesi. Per due anni si sono avvicendati numerose consultazioni, studi di fattibilitá, esplorazioni e missioni preparatorie in Abkhazia, Odessa e sud Ossezia, anche alla presenza di rappresnetanti di Russia e Armenia.
NP sará ora impegata nel contribuire alla riscotruzione sociale della zona, facilitare spazi nonviolenti di dialogo e aumentare il senso di protezione di queste popolazioni ancora fortemente scosse dall’ultimo conflitto armato dell’agosto 2008 tra Russia e Georgia.
Nonostante attualmente sono rari gli episodi di attacchi violenti, in questi territori paura e sfiducia sono elementi in grado di ostruire il processo di pace o addiruttura far scattare una nuova esclation violenta.
Quello di NP é il primo uffcio gestito da un organizzazione internazionale al di fuori di Gori (capitale amministrativa del Shida Kartli), si tratta quindi di un importante segnale di vicinanza alle popolazioni profondamente colpite da un conflitto solo in minina parte considerato dalla comunitá internazionale.(fonte:Centro Studi Difesa Civile (CSDC)

Making handbook for peace

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 10 settembre 2011

Geneva /New York: Interpeace launches the handbook: ‘Constitution-making and reform: Options for the Process’ a comprehensive resource for national constitution-makers and their advisors. Over 150 new constitutions have been created since 1975, and as many as 20 national constitutions are reformed or adopted each year. Recent months and the ‘Arab Spring’ have proven that this development continues. This year alone, constitutional reforms have been, or are, on the agenda in Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, Nepal, Southern Sudan, Zimbabwe and now Libya. A modern constitution needs to be legitimate in the eyes of the people, but achieving this is a challenge. Often national and international constitution-makers feel out in the cold as there has been no comprehensive resource on the options for constitution-making and reform. The design, implementation and management of these processes, in an inclusive way, create the foundations for lasting peace. The stakes are high. If the process goes wrong the seeds of future conflict and violence will be sown. Interpeace, an international peacebuilding organization, is now filling this critical gap.
Held at the United Nations (UN) in New York, H.E. Mr. Joseph Deiss, President of the UN General Assembly is providing the opening remarks. His Royal Highness Prince Zeid Ra’ad Zeid Al-Hussein of Jordan, Permanent Representative of Jordan to the UN and Chair of the Peacebuilding Commission Country Configuration for Liberia, will moderate a panel discussion. He will be joined by Jean-Marie Guéhenno, Director of the Center for International Conflict Resolution, SIPA, and former Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations; Nicholas Haysom, Director of Political Affairs, Executive Office of the UN Secretary-General; Jamal Benomar, UN Special Advisor and Envoy for Yemen and former Director of the UN Rule of Law Unit; and Michele Brandt, co-author of ‘Constitution-making and Reform: Options for the Process’.
Four respected experts from the constitution-making domain, Michele Brandt, Director of Interpeace’s ‘Constitution-making for Peace’ initiative, Jill Cottrell, Yash Ghai, and Anthony Regan, have united to create this ‘how to guide’ for constitution-makers around the world.
The handbook provides practical guidance on how to design transparent, nationally led and owned processes that are also participatory and inclusive. The handbook will be available on line for all to access from the 9th September at 9am EST on http://www.interpeace.org
