High level Forum at the United Nations
BackgroundThe Permanent Forum for a Culture of Peace and Global Ethics (PFCP) is being developed as the executive branch of the United Nations Conflict Mediation Commission initiated by Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan in his address to the General Assembly in September 2011.
The PFCP high level group of experts is composed of religious leaders, parliamentarians and academic leaders who will act within their level of influence and authority to implement the United Nations Resolutions for a Culture of Peace in their respective nations, regions and communities.
The establishment of the PFCP as an official United Nations organ will give a voice to moderate religious leaders who will work alongside parliamentarians and academic leaders to implement the United Nations Resolutions on a Culture of Peace towards conflict prevention in the national and international arenas, and as a a task force for conflict mediation in cases of emergency conflict and hostilities.
Following the preliminary conferences and strategy sessions conducted over the past decade, the Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Global Ethics in co-ordination with CRFT have received the official confirmation of the Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan for Nigeria to be the spearhead for the initiative at the United Nations.
CRFT and the inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Global Ethics have developed a Coalition of Friends who support the initiative and have conducted contacts with the governments of Kazakhstan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Morocco, Mexico and Korea to partner with Nigeria for the implementation of the initiative.
CRFT and the Inter-Parliamentary Coalition for Global Ethics develop the implementation plan for the Conflict Mediation Commission/PFCP together with the Coalition of Friends.
