The Symposium’s agenda will be:
Day One: New U.S. and International Policy Frameworks for Responding to Violent Conflict
Leaders from the Department of State, USAID, Department of Defense, National Security Council, Implementing Partners, Capitol Hill, Civil Society, and international partners will explore the Stabilization Assistance Review and other new policy frameworks and grapple with questions concerning implementation, including division of labor, sequencing, and measures of success.
Day Two: New Partnerships and Practices to Advance Conflict Prevention, Mitigation, and Stabilization
Leaders from the World Bank, UN, OECD, DFID/FCO, and other international donors/organizations will engage with the USG, implementing partners and CSOs on possibilities for common action and pooled funding to achieve greater stability. Special attention will be paid to coordinating efforts to avoid working at cross purposes, and how to build flexibility into programming with achievable and realistic goals and funding.
