1. About Geneva Peace Week

Why Geneva Peace Week?
Geneva is home to a large number of international organizations, including more than 40 United Nations entities, a thriving community of non-governmental organizations and renowned academic and research institutions. Together, all these actors work for peace, rights and well-being, touching the lives of individuals across the world. Geneva Peace Week offers an opportunity to connect and highlight the work of these actors and to expand the space for dialogue about building peace and resolving conflict.
What is Geneva Peace Week?
By synchronizing meetings on different topics related to the promotion of peace during one week, Geneva Peace Week maximizes synergies between organizations in Geneva,
focused on the cross-cutting nature of peace.
Geneva Peace Week underlines that each and every person, actor and institution has a role to play in building peace and resolving conflict. It also highlights that peace promotion occurs in many different contexts and cuts across disciplines and sectors. In this sense, Geneva Peace Week highlights the importance of working outside the silos that all – too – often characterize the international community to enable more creative responses.

2. Programme

Geneva Peace Week 2015 is the umbrella for
41 events organized by 50 institutions

All events resulted from a public call for submissions of events to contribute in two programme tracks. The Main Programme
has been developed collaboratively between UNOG, the
founding partners of the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform, organizations hosted in the Maison de la Paix, and the University of Geneva. The Side Events Programme reflects events organized by
Permanent Missions, International Organizations, and non-governmental organizations in consultative status with ECOSOC.

Overall, Geneva Peace Week has encouraged event partnerships across institutions and sectors.

Geneva Peace Week principles Geneva Peace Week is a collective action initiative that is structured by the following
principles:

  1. Each organization organizes its own events by itself, retains its own visibility and ownership of the event, and acknowledges the event is part of Geneva Peace
    Week.
  2. Events should focus on substantive and original contributions about building peace and resolving conflict. Events are
    not allowed to serve the exclusive promotion of a specific organization. Geneva Peace Week is not a political platform.
  3. Parallel public events should not coincide with major Geneva Peace Week events.
  4. All event information will be advertised in the programme of Geneva Peace Week.

The Geneva Peacebuilding Platform is a joint project of four institutions: The Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding (CCDP) of the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies; the Geneva Centre for Security Policy (GCSP); Interpeace; and the Quaker United Nations
Office, Geneva (QUNO).
