Local Editor

Over thirty experts, researchers and academicians converged on the Somali capital for the start of a three-day conference on fostering peace and national reconciliation in Somalia.

The first of its kind in the country, the Colloquium on Peace and Reconciliation in Somalia seeks to generate a body of research that will enhance efforts at conflict prevention and reconciliation, which are widely considered to be a prerequisite for lasting stability in Somalia.

The event is co-hosted by the Federal Government of Somalia, the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia [UNSOM] and the Norwegian government.

"[The experts] have been assembled to share their knowledge and their expertise and to figure out how collectively that experience can be geared to the extraordinary challenge Somalia faces," explained the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General [SRSG] for Somalia, Michael Keating, during the official opening of the colloquium.

A portfolio of expert briefing papers that was prepared by organizations from within and outside Somalia will be discussed to critically examine the dynamics of conflict in the country and explore options for curbing violence. Plans are underway to publish the portfolio of papers in book form later this year.

Colloquium participants will also identify practical steps for promoting peace and reconciliation initiatives at the national and regional levels.

The federal Minister of Interior, Federal Affairs and Reconciliation, Abdi Mohamed Sabriye, expressed his government's commitment to achieve a lasting peace and welcomed the contributions of the assembled Somali and international experts to that endeavor.
