Role of NGOs in building civilian capacities in the Arab region
In connection with the 11th Sectoral Meeting between the League of Arab States (LAS) and the United Nations (Cairo, 11-12 June 2013), LAS hosted an expert-level workshop at its headquarters in Cairo, which focused on the role of NGOs in building civilian capacities in the aftermath of conflict.
The aim of the workshop was to explore opportunities for greater regional cooperation and coordination between Member State governments and regional civil society actors in responding to regional challenges, including the identification and deployment of civilian expertise from within the region. The Civcap team presented on the importance of civilian capacities for post-conflict/ transition institution building and capacity development.
Participants included representatives from LAS Member States, regional NGOs, and academics and subject matter experts.
