Luncheon featuring freelance multimedia journalist Jina Moore, Pulitzer Center grantee and Fulbright fellow. Five years ago, the United Nations embarked upon a new experiment to support post-conflict countries as they transition into more stable societies. From reintegrating ex-rebels to laying the groundwork for elections, from brokering security sector reform to broadening development, the UN Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) looks at it all. Moore will discuss her investigations on the impact of the PBC on the people who are supposed to benefit from the new peace in Guinea Bissau, Burundi, Sierra Leone, and Central African Republic. Does peace finally have a chance?
The United Nations is currently considering the findings of a five-year review of the PBC. Moore's independent look at the commission is part of a reporting project made possible through collaboration between the Stanley Foundation and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. This event is co-sponsored by the Stanley Foundation and the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
