Pathways for Peace : Inclusive Approaches to Preventing Violent Conflict

World Bank Group and United Nations

As part of the Geneva Peace Week, on 8 November 2017, Alexandre Marc, the Chief Technical Specialist, Fragility, Conflict, and Violence at the World Bank, launched the joint United Nations and World Bank Prevention Study – “Pathways for Peace: What is new with the Global Prevention Policy.”

  • Addressing the resurgence of violent conflicts in recent years, the study looks at how development processes can better interact with diplomacy and mediation, security, and other tools to prevent conflict from becoming violent. To understand ‘what works,’ the report reviews recent literature and thematic papers, such as the World Development Report 2011, to analyze and highlight the experience of different countries and institutions and the elements that have contributed to peace. The analysis provides clear recommendations to governments and the international community on improvement of approaches to prevention violent conflicts. The full presentation can be accessed below.
