The Geneva Peacebuilding Platform is mandated by the four partner institutions to act as a ‘knowledge hub’ to advance new knowledge and understanding of peacebuilding issues and contexts, and to facilitate the interaction on peacebuilding between different institutions and sectors.
The overall goal of this mandate is to nurture the networking of peacebuilding resources in Geneva and worldwide; and build bridges between International Geneva, the United Nations peacebuilding architecture in New York, and peacebuilding activities in the field.
In support of this mandate, the Platform will:
- Develop a network of peacebuilding professionals and institutions;
- Provide policy-relevant advice and services;
- Ensure a continuous exchange of information, and necessary ‘reality checks’, through formal or informal seminars, consultations, and conferences; and
- Work across institutional and sectorial divisions.
