Geneva Peace Week offers an opportunity to connect and highlight the work of these actors and to expand the space for building peace and resolving conflict through dialogue and negotiation.

Geneva Peace Week emphasizes that each and every person, actor and institution has a role to play in building peace and resolving conflict. It recognizes that peacebuilding occurs in many different contexts and cuts across disciplines and sectors. In this sense, Geneva Peace Week breaks down professional silos in order to enable creative responses to violence, exclusion and insecurity.

Thank you for joining us for a joint panel with Peace Direct & International Peace Institute!

 Although there is growing recognition that peacebuilding must be locally led, priorities for peacebuilding are often set without adequately consulting or incorporating local knowledge and expectations, ignoring the influence and reach of local civil society organizations.

To elevate the voices of local actors and their innovative approaches to fostering sustainable peace, the International Peace Institute (IPI), Peace Direct and Nonviolent Peaceforce hosted a panel discussion, featuring three local peacebuilders, each operating in unique and complex contexts.
