Chair: Ben Shepherd, Consulting Fellow, Africa Programme

Overview

The inauguration of President Faustin-Archange Touadéra in May marked an important milestone in the Central African Republic’s (CAR) political transition following the sectarian violence that broke out in 2012. However, corroded institutions, a fragile security environment and a weak economy continue to pose challenges for building lasting peace in the country. The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in the Central African Republic (MINUSCA), remains a key stakeholder in efforts towards peace and stability, with its mandate extended until 31 July 2016. 

At this event, Deputy Special Representative and Deputy Head of MINUSCA Diane Corner, will discuss the current situation in the CAR and MINUSCA’s role in ensuring a sustainable and lasting transition. 

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
