Background

The project “Support to Political Dialogue and National Reconciliation in Guinea Bissau” has contributed to peacebuilding efforts in Guinea-Bissau by enabling, in four areas of intervention, initiatives that have fostered: constructive political dialogue to resolve the current and prevent future crises; national consensus on issues of critical importance for national stability in the medium and long term; and national unity, particularly at a time of potentially divisive discourse.

Initiatives in the first area of intervention have fostered constructive political dialogue by supporting facilitation initiatives of the Women’s Forum for Peace. Positive results achieved by the Women’s Facilitation Group in opening up dialogue channels between the parties to the crisis demonstrated the Forum’s significant potential to positively impact on the readiness of political actors to engage directly with each other on the implementation of commitments made to resolve the crisis.

Initiatives in the second area of intervention have strengthened inclusive and sustainable national capacities for dialogue and mediation with a focus on women as agents of change, inspired by the work of the Women’s Facilitation Group, and in line with Security Council resolution 1325 (2000). Initiatives in this area of intervention have focused on increasing the technical competence and expertise of a pool of women facilitators to support track 1 processes, as well as promoted community dialogue and local-level mediation.

The third area of intervention has strengthened the capacity of national actors to engage with national authorities in the identification of technical aspects, legal options and roadmaps of activities required to implement key State and institutional reforms that are essential for long-term political and institutional stability, i.e. state reform (good governance); constitutional

review; review of the electoral law; review of political parties’ law; and defence, security and justice sector reforms.

Finally, initiatives under the fourth area of intervention the project has focused on supporting national actors in their preparations for the National Conference “Paths to Peace and Development”. The National Popular Assembly established the OCNC in 2009 to organize the National Conference, which will serve as platform for a nation-wide discussion on the root causes and consequences of conflict in Guinea-Bissau, as well as on possible solutions to outstanding challenges. By mobilizing social interest in and unity behind the reconciliation agenda, and by convening a diverse range of actors around the issue, initiatives in this area of intervention will contribute to mitigating the effects of potentially divisive political discourse in Guinea-Bissau.
