Sustaining Peace

QUNO’s vision of sustainable peace includes both the development of human and institutional capacity for resolving conflicts without violence and the transformation of the conditions that generate destructive conflict. A comprehensive approach to building peace should therefore imperatively include the prevention of destructive conflict. To that end, QUNO’s current work on sustaining peace underscores the centrality of human rights in upholding the conditions for peace, notably through processes, policy and practice at the UN Human Rights Council and within the UN Peacebuilding Architecture.
