The Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR), in its drive to use art and literature to convey the narratives of our past, present and future to the younger generation of Nigerians, is delighted to announce a nationwide literary contest in poetry and fiction (short stories) in collaboration with some stakeholders.

Entries in both categories would be centred around the themes of patriotism, peace-building, forgiveness and peaceful coexistence targeting youths at the secondary school level.

A panel of judges will select the best 50 poems and 50 short stories for publication in two books for use in secondary schools. The best three entries in each category will be rewarded with prizes to be awarded at the one-day conference on Youths, Peace and Security where the two books will also be unveiled to the public.

The top three winners in both categories will get N250,000, N200,000 and N100,000 respectively.

The United Nations General Assembly declared 21st September of every year as the International Day of Peace or World Peace Day through Resolution 55/282 of 1981. This day is set aside to promote and strengthen the ideals of Peace within and among nations and peoples of the world as well as to campaign against violence globally. The theme for 2019 is “Climate Action for Peace”.

In keeping with the UN Resolution, the Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR), the apex federal government agency with the mandate of promoting peace, conflict prevention, management and resolution in Nigeria and Africa, in collaboration with critical stakeholders and development partners, is organizing a cost-free one day “Side Event by Civil Society” as part of its week-long activities to mark the 2019 International Day of Peace. This is aimed at promoting peace work and to build partnerships among peace scholars and practitioners in Nigeria.

The Institute is therefore calling for entries from Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) working on CLIMATE CHANGE AND CONFLICT to showcase their past and current activities on the theme. All entries should be sent on or before Saturday 7th September, 2019 to the National Committee 2019 PEACE DAY

IPCR HOST STRATEGIC CONSULTATION ON POST-CONFLICT PEACE BUILDING

The Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR) hosted a Strategic Consultation on Post-conflict Peace Building in the North East on Monday, May 18, 2015. The strategic consultative meeting is coming on the heels of the successes recorded by the military and other agencies in the ongoing fight to end the Boko Haram insurgency in the region.

In a welcome address, the Director General of the Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution, Prof. Osh*ta O. Osh*ta observed that the consultative meeting was convened to identify gaps that needed to be filled in the areas of post-conflict peace building particularly in the liberated parts of the North East from the insurgency. This he said was crucial in the interest of peace in the aftermath of the insurgency.

Prof. Osh*ta observed that although the security agencies and other partners had a mandate on the operations in the North East, the IPCR which is a think tank, as well as conduct policy-relevant research and intervention in the areas of peace, conflict, and security matters, is concerned about relevant security agencies and development partners synergising toward post-conflict reconstruction and peace building.

He identified a lack of coordination among agencies as one of the gaps in the ongoing interventions in the North East. The Director General was particular about strategizing toward the next phase in the intervention in the region, especially with the gains being recorded by the military and other security forces in the affected areas.

Peace and Security Forum Review UN Security Council Reforms

The Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution (IPCR) under the auspices of the Peace and Security Forum (PSF) hosted a conference to discuss propositions for reforms of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) based on regional representation and also with the proscription of permanent seats and veto rights.

The conference, ‘Towards a Legitimate and Effective UN Security Council’ held on Wednesday, June 17, 2015 examined the existing pattern of global distribution of power and the resultant power dynamics that has been the drawback of the Global South since the UN emerged in 1945.

Dr. Jakkie Ciliers, the Executive Director and co-founder of the Institute for Security Studies (ISS), Pretoria, South Africa opened the dialogue by first observing that there was a growing, near-unanimous consensus on the need to reform the UN Security Council which has continued to maintain its old look and feel of five permanent members.

The scholar anchored this point on the evidence of a fast changing world that had gone beyond a three-fold increase in global population, to the emergence of a diffusion of power (away from states) and an accompanying shift in alternative material power and influence from the Global West and North to the Global East and South. He said that these changes therefore marked an ongoing transition from uni-polarity to greater multi-polarity and therefore called for a more representative UNSC that would enhance its effectiveness and transparency.

He called the new movement for a reformed UNSC 'Elect the Council' which argues for the role and influence of civil society organisations in global governance. The group he said was of the opinion that civil society should bring its weight to bear on the task of major structural and procedural reform of the UNSC in order to retrieve its eroding legitimacy and fading relevance, thereby making it to be more representative.

Dr. Ciliers therefore advocated for a resolution to amend the charter adopted by a vote of two-thirds of the members of the UN General Assembly and ratified in accordance with their respective constitutional processes by two-thirds of the members of the UN, including five permanent members of the Security Council.
