Review Conference 2011

Ministerial Review Conferences are held regularly to assess progress concerning the process and implementation of the Geneva Declaration. The 2nd Ministerial Review Conference was held in Geneva on 31 October and 1 November 2011. 

In adopting the motto 'Reduce armed violence, enable development', the 2nd Ministerial Review Conference has focused on sharing the wealth of experience that participants have gathered in tackling the scourge of armed violence.

The Ministerial Review Conference, hosted by the Government of Switzerland and by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), took place at the Geneva International Conference Centre (CICG). Nearly 500 participants—including accredited national delegations from 96 countries, as well as invited international and civil society organisations—attended the event.
