Peacebuilding: Practicalities and Challenges

Peacebuilding: Practicalities and Challenges

Goal 16 of the UN Agenda for Sustainable Development commits member-states to “promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.” What remains unclear is how the ideals of Goal 16 translate into practice at local level. The practicalities and challenges of local governance in peacebuilding need to be explored. For example, what are the relationships between government and peacebuilders at local level? Is Goal 16 even relevant to a local context? What does it mean to practitioners? Are the frames and indicators of Goal 16 salient and relevant to them? This symposium aims to explore these questions in a series of panel discussions, including researchers, practitioners and policy makers. Specifically, it will explore:

- What is peacebuilding and how is it linked to development?

- Is Goal 16 a useful strategic framework for peacebuilding?

- To what extent is Goal 16 relevant for local peacebuilders from different contexts?
