Seminar: Do fragile and conflict-affected countries prioritise core government functions?

Banner image

Two UNDP seminars on 4 June in Stockholm, Sweden, and 5 June in Helsinki, Finland

Work conducted by our Conflict, Security, and Violence team will be presented at two public seminars, jointly organised by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), OPM, Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation, and UNU-WIDER. The seminars are designed to share and discuss the findings of a forthcoming report: 'Do fragile and conflict-affected countries prioritise core government functions?'

This report is based on a research project undertaken for UNDP, which looked at whether, and how, prioritising spending on core government functions (CGF) can lead to more successful transitions towards peace and development in fragile and conflict-affected countries. This research was based on country case studies in Sierra Leone, Pakistan, Colombia, Myanmar, and South Sudan, and was devised to provide evidence to inform the ways in which post-conflict assistance is conceptualised and designed. You can read more about the project's approach and its outcomes in our project description.
