Ensuring Sustainable Peace: Strengthening Global Security and Justice through the UN Peacebuilding Architecture

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Sep 30, 2015 | The Hague Institute for Global Justice, Stimson Center, Necla Tschirgi, Cedric de Coning

While demand for international peacebuilding assistance increases around the world, the UN’s Peacebuilding Architecture (PBA) is largely marginal in building peace. Among the PBA’s shortcomings are its original design, the Security Council’s uneasy relations with the Peacebuilding Commission (PBC), differences within the UN system, and the changing nature of conflicts. For the international community, this is an unsustainable state of affairs.  In their paper for The Hague Institute for Global Justice and the Stimson Center, Necla Tschirgi and Cedric de Coning examine options for making the PBA a more effective instrument of conflict management and peacebuilding.
