2017 Annual Conference
Peace Now More Than Ever
Dates: October 11 – 13, 2017
The politics of war and peace have shifted significantly in recent years. Violent conflicts from Central America to Syria have sent waves of refugees into host countries, leading to deep political divisions, humanitarian crises, and, in some states, the rise of populist leaders. In the face of extreme challenges, the peacebuilding community must unite and work more collaboratively for sustainable peace and security. Our field offers powerful solutions to complex problems, and global initiatives such as Agenda 2030 provide new frameworks for addressing rapidly changing dynamics. Events around the world in the past year have been a call to action for our community.
The 2017 Annual Conference will provide a platform for peacebuilders to explore both the challenges and the bright spots facing our field, and develop new solutions for the future. The event serves as a dynamic space for professionals in peacebuilding, the broader peace and security field, to network with each other. Attendees will have the opportunity to exchange ideas, reflect on international crises, discuss the most important issues in the peacebuilding field, and develop collaborative projects.
