Expert Group Meeting on the Reconstruction of Governance & Public Administration after Conflict
Start Date: Oct 02, 2008
End Date: Oct 04, 2008
Venue: Accra

Voluminous amounts of research on reconstructing governance and public administration structures after conflict have yielded numerous studies, reports, guidelines, enumerations of principles, and generic recommendations.  However, it has proven difficult to pinpoint concrete lessons learned and best practices for adaptation and replication.  Clearly identifying processes and procedures for implementation, as well as gaps in responses also appear to be needed.  It is particularly important to disaggregate the roles and responsibilities of state and non-state actors, as well as the role and influence of external actors such as regional and international organizations in the sustainable reconstruction of governance and public administration capacities after conflict.


To undertake an in-depth examination of these issues, the Division of Public Administration and Development Management (DPADM) of the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA) will address the subject in its next World Public Sector Report on “Post-Conflict State Capacity: Reconstructing Governance and Public Administration Capacities for Conflict Prevention, Recovery, and Development – Lessons Learned” (working title) in December 2009.  A series of expert meetings, research activities, on-line expert/practitioner e-discussions and in-house research will inform the results and recommendations of the final publication.  As an initial exercise the Governance and Public Administration Branch (GPAB) of DPADM and the Conflict Prevention and Recovery Cluster of the Bureau for Crisis Prevention and Recovery (BCPR) of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) will organize an Ad hoc Expert Group Meeting on the above in Accra, Ghana from 2 -4 October 2008.  It will bring together practitioners working in different conflict and post-conflict situations to focus on existing cases of good practice and identify specific policy strategies and implemtation models as well as lessons learnt from them.
