Delegation from Pax Christi International visits the EU Directorate-General for International Cooperation and Development

 

Today, a delegation from Pax Christi International consisting of Mrs. Martha Ines Romero (Regional Coordinator for Latin America) and Alice Kooij Martinez (Senior Advocacy Officer) visited the EU Directorate-General Cooperation and Development. 

The aim was to discuss the statement that Pax Christi International, together with COMECE and Justice & Peace Europe, submitted to the EU regarding its Joint Communication on Resilience. Furthermore, we discussed how supporting communities through training in nonviolence approaches for the transformation of conflicts can contribute to resilience by presenting our work in the Latin American region (Guatemala, Peru, Colombia, Mexico, Chile, Paraguay).

Follow up contacts will be made between the Regional Coordinator and different EU delegations, and the International Secretariat will keep on working with its partners at the EU on its Joint Communication on Resilience that will be be published in the coming months.
