Islamic Cooperation Conference

Peace Research Institute presented by its Director Dr. Mohamed Mahjoub Haroon, has participated in the First OIC Member States Conference on Mediation (Surge in Mediation: The Role of the OIC) that was held in Istanbul by the 21st of November 2017.

The conference discussed perspectives on the Role of Regional Organisations in Mediation. Mediation is considered a very important and effective method in conflict resolution. The third UN General Assembly Resolution on mediation (A/70/328 of 2015), has accordingly called on regional/sub-regional organizations to take a more active role in mediation. Furthermore, the conference opened the flower for suggestions and proposals to draw a millstone for the OIC’s role in mediation.
