|In an attempt to address the political crisis in South Sudan, H.E. President Salva Kiir called a National Dialogue on December 14, 2016. The local consultative phase of the dialogue process has been concluded and the regional phase will be concluded in two weeks. The national conference phase of the dialogue process is scheduled some time in October 2019.
The National Dialogue -ND- is changing the peacebuilding landscape in South Sudan. As the first truly nationally owned and country -wide opportunity for citizen voice and engagement, it is one of the opportunities for a bottom up approach to peacebuilding. Thanks to UNDP/UNMISS and Japan’s support, the ND has been transformed from an idea to a practical framework for fostering citizen’s engagement. The process, content and substantive outcome of the dialogue thus far has been anything but impressive. Beyond an impartial space for citizen participation, the ND is now shaping the ambition and narrative of the country. It is setting benchmark, which could frame the new constitution. Just over 17 months, the ND have engaged more South Sudanese than any peace agreement. The conversations are emotive, frank but constructive, and the emerging recommendations from the local and regional consultations are wide and deep.
