Forging Social Contracts to Prevent Violent Conflict, to Protect Human Rights and to Sustain Peace: Bringing our Strategic Approaches and Resources to Bear

The international community has faced challenges in finding winning collective formulas to support the prevention of violent conflict and achieving and sustaining of peace in light of the profound complexities of any given country situation.

In response, the new ‘sustaining peace’ approach at the UN recognizes that ‘development, peace and security, and human rights are interlinked and mutually reinforcing’ and calls for a comprehensive and system wide approach to sustaining peace.

As part of the 2017 Geneva Peace Week this event brought together experts from the field and academia to discuss current fragmented policy approaches and identify innovative policy and practice at international, national and local levels.
