The University of Johannesburg’s (UJ) Institute for Pan-African Thought and Conversation (IPATC), in collaboration with the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES) Office in South Africa, and the UJ Library, will be holding a public dialogue on “South Africa’s Second Year on the United Nations Security Council”. This event is scheduled to take place at the University of Johannesburg, Auckland Park Kingsway (APK) Campus Library (Chinua Achebe Auditorium, 6th Floor), on Thursday 13 February 2020 from 17h00 to 18h30.
This series of public dialogues on South Africa on the United Nations (UN) Security Council (2019-2020) seeks to enhance effective policymaking and coordination within the South African government, and to promote dialogue between policymakers, scholars, civil society actors, and members of the informed general public.
In October 2019, South Africa chaired the UN Security Council. Its four key priorities were: managing African conflicts; promoting the African Union (AU) and UN cooperation; pushing the agenda of “Women, Peace, and Security”; and promoting the AU campaign of “Silencing the Guns by 2020”. This public dialogue will examine South Africa’s second year on the Council, paying particular focus to the outcomes of Tshwane’s agenda.
Dr. Janice Golding, Programme Manager, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Tshwane.
Mr. Zaheer Laher, Acting Chief Director, United Nations Peace and Security, Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO), Tshwane; and
Dr. David Malone, Rector of the United Nations University (UNU), Undersecretary-General of the United Nations, Tokyo, Japan.
