The White Paper on Peacebuilding calls for a broader conversation about how countries themselves can most effectively move towards sustainable peace and how the UN and other international actors can assist them in this endeavour. The need for this conversation is based on the assumption that the next decade will see more pressures on states and societies. This, in turn, will likely result in more conflicts as local, national, regional and international systems are put under stress. This paper gathers the current data behind this assumption.
