Annual Report 2006
Writing an annual report presents an opportunity to reflect, not only on an organisation and its work, but on the broader context it operates in. The world around us in 2006 brought hope in some areas, but also the certainty that a great deal of work remains to be done. We saw situations deteriorate in Sudan, Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon, Basque Country and Somalia, and remain unchanged in many other war-torn regions. However, positive news also came to us, from Nepal, Northern Ireland, Aceh and Uganda, to name a few examples. For the European Centre for Conflict Prevention (ECCP), 2006 was a year of consolidation and continuity, but also one of change and transition.
