Call for Nominations for Sergio Vieira de Mello Award

Call for Nominations for Sergio Vieira de Mello Award

The Sergio Vieira de Mello Foundation is extending the launch of a worldwide call for nominations for its 2015 Award till 30 April 2015. This prize rewards an individual, a group or an organisation whose original and daring initiatives have brought people in conflict in war-torn societies towards reconciliation.

Through his long career at the United Nations, Sergio Vieira de Mello, who was killed on duty with 21 other UN colleagues in a car-bomb attack against the UN building in Baghdad in 2003, worked tirelessly to support those who aimed to achieve peace in situations of conflict. He pursued his ideal from Kosovo to the African Great Lakes; from East Timor to Bosnia.

It is to perpetuate Sergio’s work that the Foundation decided to attribute an award for the unnoticed efforts made by an individual, group or organisation having done something special and unique to reconcile people and parties in conflict.

The Foundation is looking for awardees, preferably at grassroot level, who are not necessarily known but would benefit from the international recognition for their work. They could then serve as an example to others and their efforts could be duplicated elsewhere in the world.

The first Award was granted to Iraqi NGO Al-Mesalla Center for Human Resources in 2011 and the second one to South-Sudan Bishop Emeritas Paride Taban in 2013.

If you know or would want to propose an organisation, a group or and individual for this Award, please consult the following web page.

Nominations for this year’s Award should reach the SVdM Foundation by 30 April 2015 using the nomination form on the website or by email at: info@sergiovdmfoundation.org, or by post at : Sergio Vieira de Mello Foundation, 29 rue des Allobroges, 1227 Carouges, Geneva, Switzerland.

Why Aid Can Fuel Violence | Foreign Affairs

Why Aid Can Fuel Violence | Foreign Affairs | Conflict transformation, peacebuilding and security | Scoop.it
Yet recent evidence indicates that sending aid into conflict-affected regions can actually worsen violence in some cases. Over the past decade, our research collective, the Empirical Studies of Conflict Project (ESOC), has conducted a suite of studies in conflict zones to test this relationship. Among other countries, we studied the Philippines, a state riven by a variety of long-term conflicts in areas with limited governmental control. Our findings provide several lessons on how infusions of aid work in poorly governed spaces.

Syria Calling: Radicalisation in Central Asia | International Crisis Group

Syria Calling: Radicalisation in Central Asia | International Crisis Group | Conflict transformation, peacebuilding and security | Scoop.it
The Islamic State (IS) is attracting Central Asians to Syria and fostering new links among radicals within the region. Unless the five Central Asian governments develop a credible, coordinated counter-action plan, including improved security measures but also social, political and economic reforms, growing radicalism will eventually pose a serious threat to their stability.

Azawad and the rights of passage. The role of illicit trade in the logic of armed group formation in northern Mali | Clingendael | Conflict transformation, peacebuilding and security | Scoop.it
Over the past decade the displacement of narcotics supply lines has placed the remote and marginalised Sahara-Sahel region on the international drug route to the European market. Border control has become of primary importance, and an essential part of understanding the dynamics of competing political claims and armed movements.
