Engaging with local non-state actors provides opportunities for peacebuilding, especially in places where the state is absent and solutions should be sought within communities. In the third online debate of the Knowledge Platform Security & Rule of Law, 30 international experts determined key factors for successful peacebuilding policies.
In November 2014 the Secretariat of the Platform convened an expert meeting in New York for policymakers, practitioners and researchers to discuss the political nuances and operational challenges of designing, applying and interpreting security progress measurements. This report seeks to capture the debates, lessons and innovations that emerged from the day’s discussions.
Identifying knowledge gaps and presenting an agenda for further research, this report aims to provide a broad assessment regarding the status and application of a comprehensive approach to human security in FCS.
The aim of this report is to provide a better understanding of the various efforts being undertaken at the Union level, to shape more comprehensiveness in external action addressing conflict and crisis.
