While the development of indicators within New Deal focused on a specific group of countries represented by the G7+, and the Post-2015 framework discussions address universal targets in all countries, there are nonetheless critical lessons that can be drawn from the former for the latter.  These lessons are captured in the following key messages that have been developed by the Civil Society Platform on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPSS).  This civil society coordinates and supports civil society engagement in the New Deal process.  Its G7+, Northern, and wider Southern civil society members have participated as one of three primary New Deal stakeholder groups throughout the process.     ...

The purpose of this paper is to highlight the need for conflict sensitivity in security and justice sector reform (SJSR) programming. It is intended to help those involved in designing or implementing SJSR programming understand how conflict sensitivity could ensure their programming avoids inadvertantly contributing to conflict.  Note: This document does not give guidance on measuring results of conflict sensitivity in SJSR programming.  Key questions this document addresses:  What is conflict sensitivity and why is it relevant to SJSR programming?  How might SJSR programming become inadvertantly caught up in conflict dynamics?  What tools are available to enable conflict sensitivity in SJSR programming?  ...
