    Graduate Institute/Centre on Conflict Development and Peacebuilding (CCDP), Switzerland
  • Where:

The CCDP and the American University in Cairo’s School of Global Affairs and Public Policy, in cooperation with the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP), organized a consultation in Cairo in February 2013. It was the first forum of its kind to tackle the challenges faced by civil societies in Egypt and Tunisia from a comparative perspective, bringing together more than 50 participants from the entire spectrum in Tunisia and Egypt. The CCDP received the PeaceNexus Grant to support the preparation of the forum and the development of follow-up proposals.
