Kofi Annan Foundation/Post-Violence Reconciliation Initiative


The Kofi Annan Foundation is an independent non-profit organization, legally incorporated in Switzerland in 2007 by Mr. Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the UN. The purpose and the mission of the Foundation is to promote better global governance and to strengthen the capacities of people and countries to achieve more fairer, more secure world. Post-Violence Reconciliation Initiative aims for effective policies and practices that can guide reconciliation in order to secure stability and democratic governance in countries emerging from violent conflict. These are to be drawn together in a set of guiding principles which can be used by those seeking to address questions of reconciliation in their own communities: those charged with truth and reconciliation process, civil society organisations, governments and oppositions. Working towards this goal, the proposal has the following objectives: • To capture lessons on experiences, successes and failures on reconciliation in societies affected by violent conflict through research, knowledge-sharing and policy dialogue; • To provide critical analysis and improved guidelines or guiding principles on reconciliation; and • To mobilize high-level political commitment to apply these guidelines or guiding principles.
