Forming a Collective International Response to Non-State Armed Groups

Alliance for Peacebuilding

On Thursday, July 28th, 2022, AfP hosted a conversation exploring how the international community can shape a cooperative response to the central challenges and threats from non-state armed groups around the world. Building off of the recent Atlantic Council publication, Toward a Framework for Transatlantic Cooperation on Non-State Armed Groups, this event discussed a broad framework outlining how donors, governments, civil society, and researchers can respond to threats from non-state armed groups in a way conducive to sustainable peace and security. Speakers identified criteria for deciding which kinds of groups can be engaged with, analyzed burden-sharing through sharing of common objectives among the international community, and elaborated through case studies from various geographic regions such as Latin America, the Sahel, and the Middle East. This event featured AfP’s Liz Hume, the International Republican Institute’s Patrick Quirk, Chemonics International’s Ahmed Al Khameri, and ACLED’s Prof. Clionadh Raleigh.
