Under Secretary-General Jamal Benomar, Special Adviser to the Secretary-General, visited Burundi from 23 to 28 November.
Burundi has made notable progress in the peace consolidation process since the 2000 Arusha Peace and Reconciliation agreement, which helped end the country’s long civil war. The upcoming 2015 general elections are considered as a critical milestone for the long-term peace and stability of Burundi. However, tensions continue to increase and the political landscape is marred by polarization and limited political space.
