PROGRESS: Has your organization seen progress toward a culture of peace and nonviolence in your domain of action and in your constituency during the first half of the Decade?

No

OBSTACLES: What are the most important obstacles that have prevented progress?

The most important obstacles remain as before, identifying  our principal activities and then, through promotion using a new website and direct approaches to the funding community, seeking financial support in realising them. Our supportive but dispersed membership demands logistic support which currently we cannot properly provide.

ACTIONS: What actions have been undertaken by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the first half of the Decade?

SfP has a membership of retired generals and admirals from many countries, working together in the cause of peace.

In Colombo, Sri Lanka (2000), they agreed the Colombo Declaration which led to the development of the "New Initiatives in Co-operation for Peace Awards" and the "Virtual Library for Peace Operations".  

SfP maintains close links with the Joint Defence Concepts Centre in the UK and allied establishments. A published paper sets out to show opportunities for lessons learned and shared in disaster relief management have parallels in Peace Support Operations.  Another paper addresses the ICT challenge in this field. All documents are available by e-mail.

SfP members will next meet in London around 1 June 2005 to attend a conference to mark the International Day of UN Peacekeepers. Before then, the SfP website will be activated.

ADVICE: What advice would you like to give to the Secretary-General and the General Assembly to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence during the second half of the Decade?

Engage civil society more; to this end, pursue the Cardoso Report recommendations which appear to be doomed otherwise.

PARTNERSHIPS: What partnerships and networks does your organization participate in, thus strengthening the global movement for a culture of peace?


PLANS: What new engagements are planned by your organization to promote a culture of peace and nonviolence in the second half of the Decade (2005-2010)?
