On Tuesday, July 17th, the Better World Campaign and the Partnership for Effective Peacekeeping co-hosted a reception on Capitol hill commemorating the successes of the United Nations Peacekeeping missions in West Africa.
The event included remarks from the Chairman of the U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, Rep. Ed Royce (R-CA), Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI), Under-Secretary-General for UN Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Liberian Ambassador Lois C. Brutus, and Better World Campaign President Peter Yeo.
The UN Peacekeeping missions in Sierra Leone, Côte d’Ivoire, and most recently Liberia, all completed their mandates and helped the three countries transition to a path to stability.
