Annual Report 2012: A Stronger Network
I am happy to present to you GPPAC’s 2012 annual report. 2012 was a turbulent year, which saw the eruption of violence in mali, rising tensions around iran, and a coup d´état in Guinea-bissau. however, it was also a year of further democratic reform in burma, with nobel Peace Prize winner Aung San Suu kyi’s national league for democracy winning 43 out of the 44 seats they contested in a parliamentary by-election, and the signing of a framework peace agreement between the government of the Philippines and the moro islamic liberation Front after 40 years of confl ict. GPPAC very much welcomes these positive developments, but much remains to be done in confl ict prevention and peacebuilding.
