Following the UN Secretary-General’s call to action, the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC) was established to enhance the role of civil society in developing effective action in preventing and transforming violent conflict, as well as to strengthen civil society relationships with governments, the UN and regional organisations such as the European Union (EU), Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and Council of Europe.

To ensure that it includes a wide range of perspectives, GPPAC has organised 15 regional processes, each of which will develop action agendas that will feed into a global action agenda for civil society roles in conflict prevention. Hence, in Dublin (31 March – 2 April 2004) a West European Regional Conference outlined this ‘Dublin Action Agenda’. Many Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) have provided inputs to this process.
