Peacebuilding in Post-Conflict and Fragile Situations

UN Mission patrols disputed area in Sudan UN Mission patrols disputed area in Sudan

Descriptive

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 combines the socio-political issues with economic growth in a sustainable development perspective. It also focuses on the roles and interests of the different stakeholders involved as well as on the concepts of ownership and inclusiveness. The course critically examines the 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. The course finally considers the economic dimension of the process from the standpoint of governments, international organizations, donors and financial institutions.

It is open to professionals – diplomats, lawyers, legal advisers, judges, NGO staff, human rights advocates, media specialists, professionals working in emergency situations, UN staff and staff from other international organizations – who are not enrolled in the Executive Master and who want to deepen their expertise in this specific issue.
