Our Mission

“We, the member countries of the g7+, believe fragile states are characterized and classified through the lens of the developed rather than through the eyes of the developing.” – g7+ Statement, 10 April 2010, Dili, Timor-Leste

Our collective mission is to support our members to achieve transitions towards resilience and next stages of development, by engaging with actors at both the national and international level.

Drawing on shared experiences, we come together to form one united voice to advocate for country-led and country-owned peacebuilding and statebuilding processes to address conflict and fragility. In doing so, we envisage the development of capable, accountable and resilient states that respond to the expectations and needs of their populations.

Our priorities are articulated by the five Peacebuilding and Statebuilding Goals (PSGs), which were outlined in the 2010 Dili Declaration of the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding. The Goals are:

  1. Legitimate politics: Foster inclusive political settlements and conflict resolution.

  2. Security: Establish and strengthen people’s security.

  3. Justice: Address injustices and increase people’s access to justice.

  4. Economic Foundations: Generate employment and improve livelihoods.

  5. Revenues & Services: Manage revenue and build capacity for accountable and fair service delivery.

By prioritising these goals with the support of the international community, we aim to bid goodbye to conflict, and welcome development.
