Reconstruction Strategies Conference
Institute for Practical Research and Training
The Institute for Practical Research and Training
will hold its Third Reconstruction Strategies Conference 18-22 November 2004.
Over the past 12 years, Somaliland has surmounted many obstacles.
It managed to establish peace and security for the majority of its
people and it embarked on and maintained a robust democratization process
that has resulted in the completion of three free elections.
But Somaliland’s nascent democracy faces many critical
challenges. IPRT wishes to
use the upcoming conference to examine these challenges and help map the
way forward for Somaliland's democratization process and its march towards
economic and sustainable development.
The following main topics will be covered:
Importance and tenets of good governance
Economic Policy, Management of Public Resources and Taxation
The Role and the Needs of the Private Sector
Health, Education and Human Services
Institutions in Democracy
7) The Role of the
Diaspora in Economic Development, and Promotion of Good Governance.
8) Regional Integration
Papers are invited on the above and other pertinent
issues, such as refugee resettlement, the welfare and protection of
internally displaced people, peace building and conflict resolution, human
rights, and gender and minority rights issues.
If you would like to participate, please contact IPRT
by e-mail: email@example.com.
