Aims and objectives


To strengthen the role of parliamentarians in promoting sustainable peace, security and development

  • Hold Executives to account on their strategies to tackle state fragility and re-establish the basic functions of the state - security, rule of law and economic management
  • Negotiate the tensions of transitional justice without compromising fragile peace 
  • Establish strong citizen-state relations for non-violent dispute mediation and greater political transparency and accountability, especially through engagement with civil society and media
  • Employ human rights principles and instruments to support peacebuilding initiatives with specific attention to redressing gender inequalities
  • Improve the responsiveness, appropriateness and coordination of peacebuilding initiatives through parliamentary networking and alliance-building across party lines and local, national, regional and international levels
