H.E. Mokgweetsi E.K. Masisi, President of the Republic of Botswana, will deliver the keynote address at the upcoming post-Tana Forum, taking place on 18-19 July in Gaborone, Botswana. The workshop, the first in Southern Africa, will examine 'The Content and Shape of the Peace and Security Agenda in the Post-Reform Era'. The post-Tana Forum is expected to engage over 50 experts and policymakers from the AU, RECs/RMs, member states, as well as think tanks, international organizations, the diplomatic community, youth and women-led civil society organizations (CSOs).
The workshop is scheduled to review, discuss and provide further thoughts on a range of topics related to this year’s Forum theme on financing African peace and security. The featured sessions include reforming peace and security, an examination of the AU Peace Fund, free movement of people on the continent, and women and youth inclusion in peace and security.
This workshop is expected to produce an outcomes document and a policy brief to communicate the discussions and recommendations from the discussions. These will be distributed to key decision and policymaking stakeholders and will be available online on the Tana Forum website (www.tanaforum.org). Follow the discussion on Twitter using
