Addressing Fragility and Building Peace in a Changing World
5th Global Meeting of the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding
Stockholm, 5 April 2016
The world has changed dramatically since 2008 when the International Dialogue on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding was created. The number of conflicts and crises is on the rise and more people than ever have been forced to leave their homes due to injustice, human rights violations, inequality, exclusion, climate change, poor management of natural resources and the absence of political settlements and capable institutions. At the same time, extreme poverty continues to take root in countries facing conflict and fragile situations. The entire international system set up to deal with these issues is also changing. The expiration of the New Deal trial period and the landmark adoption of a global Agenda for Sustainable Development, together with the UN’s ambition to improve its peacebuilding activities, provide an important opportunity to boost our efforts towards building a more peaceful world.
It is in this context that the International Dialogue will host its 5th Global Meeting in Stockholm, Sweden, on 5 April 2016. This meeting will reaffirm our collective commitment to addressing the root causes of conflict, fragility, and violence and to creating clear pathways out of fragility and towards greater resilience, as a means of achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Minister Isabella Lövin and Minister Kaifala Marah, the Co-Chairs of the International Dialogue, will be joined by Ministers and other high-level representatives from member countries of the g7+, the International Network on and Fragility (INCAF), and senior representatives from member organisations of the Civil Society Platform on Peacebuilding and Statebuilding (CSPPS).
