This course provides a concise and systematic treatment of the peacebuilding process in post-conflict and fragile situations. It adopts a holistic definition of peacebuilding that includes social, political and economic dimensions. It also focuses on the role of the different stakeholders involved and emphasizes the importance of ownership and inclusiveness as well as the need to tailor the process to the specific peculiarities of each situation. The course critically examines the role, achievements and failures of the UN Peacebuilding Commission established in 2005, taking into account the report of the UN Advisory Group of Experts delivered in 2015. It then considers all components of the peacebuilding process in a systematic manner, with a view to offering an innovative approach combining the socio-political issues with economic growth in a sustainable development perspective. The last session of the course is devoted to a case study.
