Series on the Future of UN Mediation, Peacebuilding, Sanctions, and Special Envoys

According to the World Bank, the development opportunities of some two billion people are affected by fragility, conflict, and violence, and due to high population growth rates and weak economic development, almost 50% of those living in extreme poverty by 2030 will be concentrated in these violent prone areas (rising from 17% of the global total today). The proposed three-part series on the future of United Nations led or supported mediation, peacebuilding, sanctions, and special envoys will highlight major country/regional engagements and consider both recent advances and urgent reforms still needed in the UN’s conflict management toolbox, as well as the importance of continued close U.S. collaboration.

This series in partnership with The Stimson Center, United States Institute of Peace, Alliance for Peacebuilding, and the International Peace Institute includes an experts roundtable on November 9th and will conclude with a Public Forum in early 2019.

Check back soon for registration and details!
