International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding

International Dialogue on State building and Peace building 2011

The International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding is an ongoing series of discussions that engages stakeholders in an open and frank conversation about improving peacebuilding and statebuilding efforts in fragile and conflict-affected situations.


Timor-Leste, along with DFID, co-chairs the International Dialogue on Statebuilding and Peacebuilding.

Peacebuilding and statebuilding goals

The first global meeting of the Dialogue was held in Dili, Timor-Leste in April 2010.

Participants of the Dili International Dialogue identified 7 peacebuilding and statebuilding goals as stepping stones to achieving the Millennium Development Goals in conflict-affected and fragile states.

  1. Foster inclusive political settlements and processes, and inclusive political dialogue.
  2. Establish and strengthen basic safety and security.
  3. Achieve peaceful resolution of conflicts and access to justice.
  4. Develop effective and accountable government institutions to facilitate service delivery.
  5. Create the foundations for inclusive economic development, including sustainable livelihoods, employment and effective management of natural resources.
  6. Develop social capacities for reconciliation and peaceful coexistence.
  7. Foster regional stability and cooperation.

The goals of the Dili Declaration will serve as a foundation for future Dialogue meetings, including the following meeting which was held in Monrovia, Liberia in June 2011.

International Action Plan

Participants of the first Dialogue in Dili committed to developing an International Action Plan that will respond to the goals and challenges identified in the Dili Declaration and the Multi-Stakeholder Consultations which were carried out in advance of the meeting.

The plan will be delivered at the 4th High Level Forum on Aid Effectiveness in South Korea in November 2011.

Multi-Stakeholder Consultations

Multi-Stakeholder consultations were carried out at country or region level in 2009 to 2010 in Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Southern Sudan and Timor-Leste.

The priority concerns identified in the consultation process were used in the first International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding in Dili, Timor-Leste.
