When: 1615-1730

Venue: Palais des Nations, Room XI

Prevention of violent conflict can only be realized through inclusive, participatory peace efforts, underpinned by local ownership of those affected by conflict.

The session will highlight the role of parliament in preventing conflict as an inclusive forum for dialogue to reach political compromise, and the work of the Conflict Analysis Network (CAN), which promotes innovative tools, such as Good Enough Context Analysis for Rapid Response (GECARR). It will also consider executive education and community skills facilitating collaboration in support of peace and security.

Partners: United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UN OCHA); International Parliamentary Union (IPU); Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP); Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding (CCDP)
