Libya International Peace Forum

6 – 7 September 2017, Ramada Plaza Tunis, Tunisia

The Libya International Peace Forum: Supporting the Role of Municipalities, Civil Society & Citizens in Peacebuilding at the Local Level is a joint effort of local, national and international organisations and municipalities involved in local level mediation, peacebuilding and peace support efforts in Libya. At the initiative of the Libya Local Governance and Stabilisation Project (funded by the EU and Dutch government, implemented by VNG International in partnership with Centre for Innovative Local Governance (CILG), this Forum aims to facilitate exchange between local, regional and community-based peace initiatives in Libya joined by international partners around their respective approaches, mechanisms and experiences until date. By doing so, this Forum will highlight successes and achievements, make visible the extraordinary work being done by local peace initiatives across the country today, and enable practical discussion to identify key challenges as well as what can be done to further support and empower Libyan communities, municipalities, civil society, youth, women, and other key stakeholders working for peacebuilding in future time.

The Libya International Peace Forum is dedicated to making visible the importance of local and sub-national peace initiatives as indispensable steps towards unified stabilisation, particularly in the case of Libya. A multitude of initiatives are ongoing, it is for the first this unique two day event will provide a space for these Libyan peace activists and initiatives, including citizen-based efforts, municipal authorities and local, national and international partners to discuss and develop concrete ongoing and future strategies and measures to support community-based peacebuilding, sub-national mediation and peace processes, reconciliation, cease-fires and peace consolidation. That way, the effectiveness of these efforts, the ownership of this process by the people of Libya as well as the international support for their work shall be reinforced.

The Libya Local Governance and Stabilisation Project, implemented by VNG International and CILG-VNG International and supported by PATRIR, has supported 5 peace and mediation initiatives at local and regional level in Libya since 2015. Central in the implementation of this project is the conviction that local governments, in close cooperation with civil society, play an indispensable role in conflict prevention and peacebuilding. The initiative for this Forum is born from the belief that these different experiences together with the multitude of experiences stemming from other initiatives can reinforce one another in contributing to national-level stabilisation, if given the opportunity to communally reflect on that.


Why the Libya International Peace Forum

 Thus, the Forum is principally about providing a space for stakeholders involved in community-level and municipal peacebuilding efforts in Libya to come together, learn from each other’s experiences, make visible their efforts, and see how to strengthen and support this work going forward. Five key themes will be addressed:

  1. Strengthening Local &Sub-National Mediation, Dialogue and Peace Efforts
  2. Learning from Failures & Successes: What’s working and what isn’t working
  3. Strengthening Networking & Cooperation: Libyan Peace Actors & Supporters
  4. Supporting Key Stakeholders: Libyan Municipalities, Civil Society, Women, Youth and Business
  5. The role of international partners & donors: enabling healthy support to Libyan-led peacebuilding

The Forum will consist of plenary sessions and parallel workshop sessions. Organizations active and involved in peacebuilding, mediation, violence prevention, reconciliation, training and capacity building and other peace support efforts in Libya will contribute to the key sessions to be held during the Forum.


Principles of the Libya International Peace Forum

The Libya International Peace Forum is committed to the recognition that local stakeholders such as municipalities, civil society organisations, professionals, women, youth and local businesses in Libya play a key role in peacebuilding in the country. While national level peace initiatives are essential, there is extensive evidence from both within Libya and internationally of the importance of building peace within and between communities, including the powerful impact of local level peace charters, cease-fires, and strengthening the constructive engagement, empowerment and mobilisation of key social leaders, women and youth in peacebuilding. The Forum is intended as a space and practical platform to enable dialogue, experience sharing and exchange to support, strengthen and empower local and sub-national peacebuilding, mediation and peace processes in Libya.
