Democratization in conflict-affected countries is a multidimensional challenge. Implementing democracy-assistance programs requires more sustained and strategic security, political and development support.

In March 2010 International IDEA, together with the UN Department of Political Affairs, the UN Department of Peacekeeping Operations and the UN Development Programme, organized a round table on the United Nations’ role in promoting democracy, peace and security.

The event brought together more than 80 policymakers, practitioners and academics working on different aspects of peace, security and democracy to review the work of the UN at the critical juncture between democracy assistance, peacemaking, peacekeeping and peacebuilding.

This summary document highlights the key conclusions and recommendations that were developed by participants at the round table.
