Event description

Description

This event is organized by the Inclusive Peace & Transition Initiative, DCAF, and the World Bank. It will mark the Geneva launch of the UN-World Bank Flagship Study "Pathways for Peace."

A welcome coffee/breakfast will be provided before the event starts, from 8:30 am.

Since 2010, the number of major violent conflicts has tripled, indicating an urgent need to shift the approach from crisis management to addressing risk factors before violence starts and escalates. In this context, the UN and the World Bank have pooled their efforts to produce the Flagship Study "Pathways for Peace – Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict" to which several Geneva-based organizations, including IPTI, DCAF, and the CCDP, have contributed research inputs. The Study was recently launched at the General Assembly in New-York and this event will mark its European launch. What are the Study’s main takeaways? Are we witnessing a revolution in the global prevention policy or is this business as usual? The event will discuss the future of prevention from a research, governmental, and field perspective.
