Milan, Italy – 16 August, 2002 – NEXUS-International Broadcasting Organization will be represented at a conference entitled “Rebuilding Societies Emerging from Conflict: A Shared Responsibility”, to be held at the United Nations from 9 to 11 September 2002. The Conference will explore the role of the international community in supporting societies emerging from conflict with a special focus on post-conflict societies that have been the subject of concerted United Nations involvement. United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Han Seung-soo, President of the fifty-sixth session of the UN General Assembly, and Mary Robinson, UN High Commissioner for Human rights, are among the dignitaries that are expected to address the opening session of the Conference. Other featured speakers will include United Nations and government officials, NGO representatives and civil society leaders who have first-hand field experience in post-conflict societies and are in the forefront of the struggle to maintain the peace and rebuild society. To fully appreciate the painstaking efforts and enormous resources needed to restore a sense of normality to societies emerging from conflict, the Conference will also hear from citizens who have lived through the violence faces by these communities, as well as from cultural leaders, journalists, academics and other professionals whose work has focused on understanding the process of recovery and reconciliation.
