Good Offices

Providing 'good offices' is at the forefront of UNAMA's mandate-driven activities

At the forefront of UNAMA’s work is the provision of outreach and ‘good offices’ – which involves high-level mediation and is sometimes described as preventive diplomacy or conflict prevention. 

Outreach and good offices involves facilitating dialogue between all relevant Afghan political actors and stakeholders, the region and the wider international community, with a focus on promoting inclusive, representative, participatory and responsive governance at the national and subnational levels, without any discrimination based on gender, religion or ethnicity, with full, equal and meaningful participation of women, minorities, youth and persons with disabilities.

The Mission further provides advice on inclusive national and local consultative mechanisms, as well as confidence-building measures, capacity-building, conflict management and reconciliation.
