The Foundation for Achieving Seamless Territory (FAST), New York University’s Center on International Cooperation (CIC) and the Permanent Mission of Australia (with other Permanent Missions TBC) are pleased to invite you to the presentation of the collaborative project and publication “UN Peacekeeping Missions in Urban Environments: The Legacy of UNMIL.”
Urgent action is needed to bend the curve and accelerate the implementation of evidence-based violence reduction and prevention strategies that help those working at the national or local level. This event at Geneva Peace Week seeks to showcase early success stories in different countries to strengthen and transform preventative action, presenting the latest research by the International Peace Institute and the Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just, and Inclusive Societies.
This high-level dialogue will underscore the power of multilateralism to address the world’s most urgent challenges, among them, climate change, sustainable development, protracted humanitarian crises, large-scale human rights abuse, and threats to international peace and security. They are complex, global, cross-border issues that countries cannot address on their own.
Bringing together the Presidents of the General Assembly, ECOSOC, and the Security Council, the dialogue will underscore the value of discussing development, peace and security, and human rights in support of collective objectives.
Associate Director David Steven will join a panel of speakers for the plenary session of PeaceCon 2018, entitled Global Policy Frameworks on Sustaining Peace: A Call for Collaborative and Collective Action.
