The Group of Friends of Corrections in Peace Operations is a United Nations Member States-driven initiative providing expert advice and support on correctional issues to the UN Department of Peace Operations. The GoF was formed in 2011 when Member States identified a need to continue developing high calibre corrections personnel to be deployed as experts on UN missions, to increase sharing of ideas internationally, and to support critical activities intended to strengthen corrections sectors in post-conflict settings. The Group includes over 45 Member States and their correctional services, which is supported by Correctional Subject Matter Experts made up of UN entities and non- governmental and civil society organizations with an interest in corrections in peace operations.
A concept note and agenda for the meeting will be issued shortly.
Representatives from national correctional services are particularly encouraged to attend.
