Peacebuilding in Geneva: Mapping the Landscape

Geneva is a major global centre of peacebuilding expertise, and the Geneva peacebuilding sector is very large and diverse in terms of number of organisations, number of staff, geographical coverage, and size of budgets. Geneva thus has a critical contribution to make in the international field of peacebuilding.

With the creation of the United Nations (UN) Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) in 2005, a group of institutions working on peacebuilding undertook to explore how their constituencies could add value to the new international peacebuilding architecture, through a series of consultations and public discussions. This two-year dialogue led to a mapping of the Geneva peacebuilding landscape, the outcomes of which are presented in this publication.
